Idea to cook spaghetti Bolognese from the balance of tomato paste and tomato sauce that I used for lasagna. I also like the meat sauce from the lasagna recipe. With that, I cooked spaghetti Bolognese for lunch today.

The recipe is pretty similar to the lasagna meat sauce recipe. I changed the carrot with portabella mushroom.

The ingredients below are good for 6 serving.

Ingredients for Meat Sauce:

  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 6 portabella mushroom, cut into pieces
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 600 g minced meat (chicken, beef or pork) – roughly 100g for each serving
  • 4 tomatoes, cut into pieces
  • 100 g tomato paste
  • 1/2 can (200 g) tomato sauce
  • 1 tbsp white sugar
  • 2 dried basil leaves
  • 1/2 tsp fennel seeds
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tbsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • Pasta

We all love to eat Spaghetti Bolognese. Jared likes it even more to eat the pasta that left to rest overnight.
