September 25 Spaghetti Bolognese

Audrey and I decided to make Spaghetti. She found a recipe in her 30 Healthy Things to Cook and Eat cards. After helping me peel the garlic she ran off to feed her babies and did not want to return. I was able to find a replacement Sous Chef.

Spaghetti Bolognese

  • 1 onion
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 stick celery
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 lb lean ground meat
  • 1 bouillon cube
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 14oz can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 6 oz can tomato paste
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 14oz dried spaghetti
Peel and chop carrot, garlic, and onion. Chop celery. Put oil and onion in large sauce pan and cook for 5 minutes on medium heat. Add garlic, carrot, and celery. Cook for an additional 2 minutes. Add meat and cook about 10 minutes or until no longer pink. Put bouillon cube in heat proof container and add boiling water. Stir well the add broth to the pan. Add tomatoes, paste, salt and pepper to pan. Boil and reduce heat to simmer, covered, for about 40 minutes. Remove lid and cook 10 more minutes. While sauce cooks, boil a pan of water for spaghetti. Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Drain well and then place in a serving bowl. Add sauce to top and serve.

Audrey's Tasks:
  1. Peel garlic
  2. Add ingredients to pan
  3. Help cook sauce
  4. Add noodles to pan
Mom's Tasks:
  1. Gather ingredients
  2. Chop vegetables
  3. Help cook sauce
  4. Cook noodles
Audrey has had a few moments recently when she is not interested in cooking. This was one of those times. I listed Audrey as the helper of sauce and noodle cooking but it was actually her sister, Maurene who helped.
