Yummy at Home, Recipe 7: Spaghetti and Meat Sauce (Hal’s Special Sauce)

I never see my husband happier than when he’s eating a bowl of delicious pasta. Fortunately, his sauce is totally off the rails. I don’t even know his recipe, but here’s what I know:

Start with two can of tomatoes. Saute onions with a bay leaf in olive oil until clear. Add minced garlic, tomatoes, basil, marjoram, oregano, chili flakes, salt and pepper. Cook on low heat until it bubbles. So far, your sauce is vegan.


In a separate pan, cook your meat. We used lamb, but beef, turkey or chicken will also work. Brown the meat with a bit of onion, salt and pepper. Add the cooked meat to your sauce. The sauce is best the next day, so if you can wait, you’ll get a reward.

Cook your favorite pasta; I like long pasta like spaghetti or fettuccine with meat sauce, but whatever you have in the cupboard will do. Serve with grated cheese and a salad or veggies. We used curly kale cooked in garlic with a slice of lemon.

Try it at home! Let me know how it turns out. We need to continue to stay home. People are dying. See for yourself: https://ncov2019.live/data.
