Tuesday Food Blog - Putenesca spaghetti

It isn't really putenesca (tart's!) spaghetti, it has elements from that dish, but it does have comfort food features.


3 Italian sausages, skinned chopped and fried
500g beef mince
14oz can chopped tomatoes
2 cloves garlic
1pt of beef stock
2 tbsp oregano
3tbsp tomato puree
1 onion, chopped
1 tsp chilli flakes
olive oil for cooking
A handful of pitted black olives cut in half
1tbsp capers


Brown the onions and add the garlic. Brown the minced beef and add oregano, chilli flakes, tomato puree and season. Pour in the chopped tomatoes stir well then add the beef stock. Finally, add the olives, capers and sausage and simmer for 30 minutes.

So from the comfort food aspect it has heat from  the chilli, sausage and a bolognese feel to the sauce.

God Bless
