Recipe of the Day: Spaghetti!

It's Ella's 17th month birthday and I decided to cook spaghetti to celebrate! Here's my take on kid's favorite birthday dish:


1 tbsp minced garlic
1 whole onion chopped 
1/2 kg ground pork or beef
1 250g Del Monte Tomato sauce
1 150g Del Monte Tomato paste
1 cup milk
2 cups water
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup tbsp sugar
1 tbsp white pepper
2 laurel leaves
1 kg spaghetti
6 tbsp cooking oil
1 tsp salt
1 can Reno liver spread
2 whole red bell peppers chopped
salt and additional sugar to taste

1. Cook spaghetti according to package instructions. Add 4 tbsp cooking oil and 1 tsp salt while boiling. Drain pasta and set aside.
2. Saute ground meat in onion and garlic until cooked. Add tomato sauce, tomato paste, milk, water, soy sauce, sugar, white pepper and laurel leaves. Bring to a boil.
3. Add bell peppers, liver spread, salt and sugar depending on taste. 
4. Serve with grated cheese.

Happy 17th month birthday my dearest!

your every woman,
