How Do You Make Your Spaghetti With Minced Meat Sauce?

Spaghetti with minced meat sauce is a dish that you can cook in a variety of ways. Everyone has their favorite recipe, and when we cook this dish, we try it almost every time with slightly different ingredients. 

This long-cooked spaghetti with luxurious minced meat sauce I make as a variation with pork meat. This makes it all juicier because pork has a higher fat content in it.

In addition to minced meat, of course, I have yellow onions, crushed tomatoes, garlic, carrots and oregano. To me, these are the obligatory ingredients in a minced meat sauce. I never have stock in my pasta sauce because one is automatically made from the ingredients you have.

Juicy and Tasty Pasta Sauce

So what makes this spaghetti with minced meat sauce different? 

Yes, I like to put in a little bit of everything. That’s why I also have mushrooms and fresh tomatoes to have a little more to chew on—as well as Dijon mustard, which gives good flavor and a little bite. 

When it comes to pasta, you can choose which sort you want. I prefer spaghetti, but it goes just as well with tagliatelle or any other pasta such as penne or fusilli. Even macaroni fits well. Serve with kalamata olives, fresh basil, and grated parmesan cheese on top. And of course some good bread and a glass of red wine.
