What do you think of when you hear the word ’Italy’? The first thing we think of is pasta — a flavored, spicy and tempting dish. What’s more, it’s so quick and easy to make.
We advice trying these appetizing Italian pasta recipes that will take almost no time to cook at all.
300 g of spaghetti
1 celery stick
200 g of beef mince
200 g of pork mince
1 can of tomatoes in their own juice
3 cloves of garlic
Cut the onion, celery stick and carrot into cubes and fry them with the olive oil until they turn soft. Fry the onion first, then add the celery a minute later, and finally the carrot after two minutes.
Stew the mince in its own juice until it turns brown. Almost all the juice should evaporate.
Cook the spaghetti in salted water according to the instructions on the packaging. Add the vegetables and canned tomatoes to the meat and simmer everything for 40 to 60 minutes. Then add the garlic.
Spaghetti with broccoli and red wine
800 g of broccoli
450 g of spaghetti
1 teaspoon of sugar
4 cloves of garlic
1/3 cup of olive oil
1/2 teaspoon of chili pepper flakes
Salt according to taste
Ground black pepper according to taste
1/2 cup of grated Parmesan
750 ml of dry red wine
Cut the broccoli into florets and place them into a pan of boiling salted water to avoid getting a bitter taste. Take the florets out and place them in a large bowl.
Bring the water with the broccoli to the boil and cook the spaghetti for 5 minutes, stirring. Then drain the water.
Combine the wine and sugar in a large pan and boil for 2 minutes. Add the spaghetti and cook it for 6 minutes until most of the wine evaporates. The pasta should be al dente.
Heat up the olive oil in a skillet. Add the chopped garlic and chili pepper flakes. Fry until the garlic turns golden. Then add the broccoli, salt and black pepper and cook everything, stirring, for one minute.
Add the spaghetti in the skillet and cook until all the wine evaporates. Turn off the stove, add the cheese, and serve hot.
