Quick And Easy Minced Beef Spaghetti

Two weeks ago, while I was away for holiday in Singapore, I received text messages from my youngest son, asking me how to cook spaghetti, so I briefly gives him instructions over whatsapp on the cooking instructions.   When I come back, I decided to type out this step by step guide for him, so that he will be able to cook this if I’m away for holiday again.

500g minced beef

1 bottle (500g) of Bolognese sauce

1 large onion, slice 

Fresh or canned mushroom

350g spaghetti

2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a non stick pan then pan fry the onions till lightly brown (about 2 mins)

3. add in the minced beef and fry till cooked (about 2 1/2 mins)

4. Add in mushroom, Bolognese sauce and mix well, bring the sauce to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5-10 mins, remove to a serving dish.

5. In a large pot, bring 2 litters of water to a boil

6. Add in 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon oil and the spaghetti and cook on high heat till the spaghetti is cooked to your liking (about 15 min), stir occasionally.
