Momma’s Spaghetti Pasta Bakepasta-bake

 

This is a little twist on plain on spaghetti bolognese. It is super quick to make and the kids absolutely loved it! If you want to make Momma’s Spaghetti Pasta Bake too…

You will need…

Serves 4

  • 400g lean mince
  • 1 tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 2 chopped cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 a chopped white onion
  • 1 tbsp of mixed herbs
  • 2 tsp of onion salt
  • 80g of grated Parmesan cheese
  • Enough spaghetti pasta for 4 people
  • Salt and pepper to taste (optional if you have young kids)
  • Cooking oil/spray (your choice!!)

 

What you need to do…

  • Boil your pasta in a little salted water, drain and set aside
  • In a hot pan, with a little olive oil, fry the garlic, onions and mince until the mince starts to brown
  • Sprinkle in the mixed herbs, onion salt and salt and pepper if you wish (the onion salt is usually enough)
  • Stir well, then add the chopped tomatoes and fry until the mince has cooked through (about 10 minutes on a medium heat
  • Take a medium sized casserole dish, pour in the pasta, separating it carefully with a fork if it has gone a little sticky. You can also give it a little rinse through a colander with some boiling water to un-stick it.
  • Pour the mince sauce over the pasta and press it down gently so the sauce goes right to the bottom, to stop it drying out.
  • Sprinkle the Parmesan on top
  • Put it in the oven for 10-15 minutes, at 180 degrees Celsius,  or until the cheese has turned golden

 

Enjoy…
