Fooding By Pearl : Spaghetti and Meat Sauce

Spaghetti and meat sauce

I do not have a favorite dish but this is pretty easy to prepare and being on campus, this is a quick meal to cook and refrigerate. Instead of having pizza or having some fast food for lunch I prepare this instead and I am also trying my best to be healthy. So here you go

  • Whole wheat spaghetti
  • lean ground beef
  • canned tomatoes sauce
  • olive oil
  •  onions
  •  yellow and red bell pepper
  •  cabbage
  • ginger
  • pepper
  •  salt and seasoning to taste.
-I boil water in a pot and add salt with a little bit of olive oil to prevent the spaghetti for sticking together.
-While the spaghetti boils, I add blended dried pepper, crushed ginger, salt and seasoning cubes to the beef.
-I love adding vegetables to most of my dishes, so I slice the vegetables (cabbage, bell peppers and onions) and fry with a little amount of olive oil. When the vegetables are slightly cooked I add the already cooked spaghetti (just like preparing fried rice). I add salt to taste and keep aside.
-For the meat sauce, I allow the oil to get hot and add chopped onions. I let it cook a bit and add dried pepper and add the already spiced ground beef to cook for a while. By doing this, the beef stock comes up and adds more taste to the beef.
-After the beef has been cooked, I add the canned tomatoes sauce and allow it to simmer for a bit. I add seasoning cubes and extra pepper to make it extra spicy and that is it!

    I believe you can get whole wheat pasta from departmental stores like Spar or shoprite. Or even your medium sized local supermarket. you will be amazed at what you can find there.
