|Ingredients from top left clockwise: thin fettucine, Paul Newman's Own Tomato, Basil and Garlic, 500g mince beef, 1 chopped onion and 1 clove garlic finely chopped (excuse the horrible yellow benchtop and brown tiles)|
Tonight, I started the pot of water boiling first. While the water was heating up I chopped the onion and garlic up then put the pasta in the pot to cook. Then, in an electric frypan, I browned the mince, drained the fat out of the pan then added the onion and garlic to brown. All that has only taken me about 15 minutes to do.
I then add the sauce to the mince, onion and garlic. Stir it in and put the lid on the frypan for about 5-10 minutes or until you're sure the mince is cooked through.
Drain the pasta, turn off the frypan and serve it all up with pasta's best friend:
|A nice Australian wine called Fifth Leg. This was a Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz Merlot ( a bit of everything if you're not sure what you feel like!)|
This bottle will probably last me about three weeks as I'm not really a drinker but I do enjoy a good red wine with my Italian dishes.
I hope you're enjoying your weekend!
