the theme of the week is One-Pot. Although the hype has abated, I find dishes made in one pot incredibly easy and perfect for a day full of work. The first recipe is a classic one-pot recipe, spaghetti bolognese.
What you need – for 5 servings
1 big red onion
850-950ml of water
1 clove of garlic
40g of dried tomatoes
500g minced meat
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tbsp of dried basil
3 tbsp olive oil
400g canned tomatoes
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 tbsp Acetobalsamic vinegar
Parmesan for garnish
Cut the onion, garlic, and dried tomatoes into very small cubes. Cut the tomatoes into 1cm big cubes.
In a high pan or saucepan, add the olive oil and roast the onion with salt (through the salt, it loses its juice and caramelizes in its own sugar). When the onion is golden brown, add the garlic as well as the meat and sauté.
Now all ingredients are added to the pot and gently stirred. The spaghetti should be completely covered by the tomato-water mixture.
Now it has to simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring every few minutes otherwise the paste sticks to the ground.
When the spaghetti are ready, sprinkle them with Parmesan on a plate and finished is a simple but incredibly delicious dish.
Tip: Don’t add all the water at the beginning to the pot, instead of poor the last 200 ml water bit by bit to the pan otherwise the sauce can be too thin.
Nice and tasty day,
