Bolognese please....




occay, today i'm gonna write another one recipe... which is Bolognese Sauce... for those who has no idea what bolognese is, this is a popular meat based sauce for various type of pasta originating in Bologna, Italy... ya, Italian cuisine is hearted all over the world and no one can say no to italian dish rite... like what ha?? do i need to tell u that pizza, spaghetti, risotto and most of desserts originate from Italy... they not only taste great but they present very nice and beautiful on the plate....




all u need first is pasta.... u can choose from spaghetti, capelline, fettucine, tagliatelle, linguine and ape2 je la... but spaghetti will do just great... nak celur spaghetti tu harus panaskan air dulu sampai agak2 nak mendidih, and just before u add the spaghetti, pour about 1-2 tblspoon of oil, n salt as well to taste... the key to get the best spaghetti is jgn celur sampai terlalu lembut, cukup sekadar sedap2 nak makan ok... buang air panas, toskan spaghetti and lalukan bawah air sejuk yg mengalir to get rid of the excess starch so that they will not stick when cold...




now for the sauce...

3 onions, chopped

5 cloves garlic, crushed and minced

4 tblsp oil

salt, ground black pepper

500-750 kg minced/ground

1 large jar canned tomatoes

1 can 200g tomato paste

2 teaspoons oregano

1 teaspoons basil

2 teaspoons fresh parsley(optional)
6 large button mushrooms, sliced (optional)

1 large carrot, grated

150 ml cream/fresh milk/ 2 tblsp condensed milk

grated parmesan cheese

2-3 teaspoon sugar


panaskan minyak dalam kuali, tumis bawang besar dan bawang putih sampai naik bau... masukkan ground beef dan kacau2 sampai masak, (this take quite sum time)... add in pepper as u desired untuk hilangkan rasa hanyir daging... masukkan garam secukup rasa, oregano and basil...

once the beef is cooked, add in the canned tomato and mash them a lil bit... masukkan tomato paste, sliced mushrooms dan grated carrot, kacau dan tunggu seketika supaya rasa tomato sebati dgn daging... pour in the remaining ingredients and stir until u get a nice gravy...


****** instead of having ground beef in the sauce, i enjoy meat balls more.... to make the meat balls, u just need ground beef and sufficient amount of grated cheese, salt, pepper, and eggs.... mix them all together and form a nice ball..... i just throw them in the gravy together with the tomato bcz they won't pecah, but stay firm in a ball... but sum pple prefer to bake them first...




and basically this simple recipe u can always modify to get ur own delicious sauce for ur spaghetti.... u can add in more cheese or skip the cream, or u can substitute the beef with chicken, prawn, clams and anything, u can adjust the sourness by adding more or cut in the amount of tomato paste, skip the sugar to get the basic sourness, and so on...... all important is the tomato paste, oregano, onions, and cheese.......... and u can have a lovely meal in front of u!!!
