Spaghetti Bolognese

I cooked this twice last week, with a slight modifications. The first one was on Thursday & the second one was on Friday. The I cooked on Thusrday was for my husband and the Friday spaghetti was specially  made for my dearest piranhas in Klang. The ingredients for both spaghetti were slightly differed. Why? Because I used whatever I had during that time. Since the first time I cooked  was at my in laws' house and  the second time was at my parents', surely the ingredients were different.

Okey. Here's how I cooked it...Please bear in mind that this is not the original traditional spaghetti bolognese...Hahaha...I have it 'diMELAYUkan'...

My Bolognese Sauce-My husband loves button mushroom

The spaghetti (I tried to 'landscape' this photo, but when uploaded, it turned this way...so I just leave it)


1 packet spaghetti (400 g)
2 packets minced beef (I used Ramli's, 250g each)
2 cans of button mushroom - sliced/diced
5 cloves of garlic - chopped
5 onions - chopped
A carrot - diced
A quarter capsicum - diced
3 tomatoes - diced
2 cans of Prego (Traditional)
1 spoonful chili paste
Black pepper
Olive oil/Oil



Bring the water to a boil, add salt and oil. Put the spaghetti into the boiling water. You can bend them around the saucepan once they have been in the boiling water for a couple of seconds.Taste the spaghetti after the recommended cooking time is over. When the spaghetti are to your liking, pour into a colander and rinse under water to cool it down.

Bolognese Sauce
  1. Heat two spoonful oil in a large saucepan. Add in chopped onions and garlic and cook until they turn brown.
  2. Add in minced beef. Fry the onions, garlic and beef until nice and crumbly.
  3. Add in chili paste and Prego. Add diced carrots, tomatoes, capsicum and button mushroom.
  4. Add half cup of water and let it simmer on low heat for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Stir occasionally. Season it with salt and black pepper according to your liking.
  5. The sauce is ready when it has reduced, thickened and blend together.
