Bolognaise

During the second week of puasa, during the 3-day Merdeka weekend, I had my friends and colleagues over at my place for buka puasa. I slaved over the electric stove all day to make dinner. Okay, okay, half a day.

One colleague, very the heavily pregnant (worried that she might give birth at my place) asked if I could make her Bolognaise Pasta so I obliged... the ingredients are:



Onions


Tomatoes


Mushrooms


Garlic (left), tomatoes - chopped (right)


Saute-ing the onions


Adding in the tomatoes, mushrooms, garlic




After adding in minced meat and tomato puree



After simmering for a while
(not pictured: ginger, salt, white/black pepper,
worchester sauce, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, oregano, paprika)


The pasta... cook until aldente or soft, rinse,
then reheat again, add butter and a little oregano or basil


Add cheese to the dish

The end product



The pregnant colleague asked me if what I was serving was Prego. I was offended at first but then I realized it was a compliment. Coz it tasted like store bought. International brand even. :)


To tell you the truth, that was my first time trying the recipe and I even tweaked the original recipe a little coz of the red wine...
