Dinner Ideas-Spaghetti with Red Sauce ,Olives,Minced Meat

A simple yet yummy  dinner idea is Pasta with red sauce, I am sure everyone does it in his /her own way.I keep playing with toppings and veggies which  you can add  to it as per your choice and their availability in your refrigerator. This time I added some olives and minced meat.


Presenting you a simple recipe from our kitchen.

Preparation time – 15 minutes                                                 Cooking time  :25-30 minutes  

Serves-2 Hungry  people

Ingredients needed:

250 g spaghetti, or half packet

1/2 medium onion, thinly chopped

2 garlic clove, crushed

1 cup tomato puree

1 tablespoon tomato paste concentrate,

100 gm ground meat

Canned Olives 7-8 chopped,

1 big tablespoon olive oil

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano ,

1/2 teaspoon dried parsley/persil

Salt, pepper as per your taste.

50-60  gm mixed cheese ( from any super market )

Parmesan cheese for dressing

Some chopped cilantro.


Boil Spaghetti according to instructions on the packet, strain and keep aside.

Heat olive oil in pan , add garlic first followed by onion and sauté until onion is tender, about 5 minutes.

Stir in  tomato sauce, both puree and concentrate until oil come up .

Add minced meat, and cook until you see meat is cooked .

Add  chopped olive,salt, pepper , dried parsley, dried oregano and paprika  powder if you like a bit hot , and continue cooking 1 minute.

Add chopped cilantro and a little water if sauce is too thick.

Now add spaghetti to sauce. ( You can keep it separate as well, and put sauce and cheese on top of spaghetti)

I like to cook it in sauce a bit, it absorbs the sauce and more over the spaghetti  gets a bit cold while kept aside.

Toss pasta with sauce and add cheese over it, few drops  of olive oil for flavour

Sprinkle remaining Parmesan over pasta.
