How To Make Tomato Spaghetti

I'm back again with another tutorial. We're gonna make Tomato Spaghetti! We will need to get spaghetti, tomato puree or pasta sauce, beef, tomatoes and mushrooms.


Pasta Sauce and Tomato Puree



Now, we marinate the beef. Use a fork and mash it till it is loose. Adding salt, pepper, sesame oil and mixed herbs are advised. Feel free to put in other spices and sauces.

After that, mix everything in the bowl. It should look something like this.

We will then start chopping. Take out some garlic, mushrooms, onions and tomatoes. Chopped all of them and put them into separate bowls.

After that, we can start cooking the spaghetti. Boil a pot of water. Then, slide the spaghetti into the pot. Be sure to stir occasionally to prevent the spaghetti from sticking to the bottom of the pot.

While waiting for the spaghetti to cook, we make the sauce. Take another deep pot and put some oil in it. Place it on the stove. After that, brown the garlic and onions. Then, we put the marinated beef into the pot and let it turn brown.

Next, add the tomatoes, tomato puree, and pasta sauce into the pot. Wait till it bubbles a little, then add the mushrooms. Add some salt and pepper after that.

Now, close the lid and leave it on slow boil. When it bubbles, turn off the heat. The spaghetti sauce will now be done.

The spaghetti should be done by now. Pour the spaghetti into a strainer. This will drain all the water away.

Then, take a big bowl and put some olive oil in it. Transfer the spaghetti from the strainer to the bowl. Finally, stir the oil into the spaghetti.
