Spaghetti with Meat Sauce Recipe

Spaghetti with Meat Sauce Recipe | My Recipe Time Authentic Italian Style Spaghetti Sauce simmered low and slow and packed with flavor!In my opinion I think there are a few key steps in creating that authentic, thick, richly flavored, meaty sauce. I’ve learned a few things trying to imitate that amazingly delicious pasta sauce that I get at a few of my favorite Italian restaurants. One of them being, you need to cook the sauce low and slow, 5 hours minimum.

Spaghetti with Meat Sauce Recipe

Ingredients

2 tablespoons olive oil
½ cup minced onion
1 clove garlic, minced
½ cup minced celery
2 tablespoons butter
1 pound lean ground beef
½ teaspoon white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon dried mint
6 ounces fresh chopped mushrooms
1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
2 (10.5 ounce) cans beef broth
2 teaspoons dried basil
1 pound spaghetti
1 teaspoon olive oil
3 tablespoons salt
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley, for garnish
¼ cup grated Romano cheese


Directions

 Step 1
In a large skillet, warm olive oil over low heat; saute onion, garlic and celery until onion is transparent.

 Step 2
Stir in butter and increase heat to medium; brown beef until no longer pink. Mix in sugar, 1 teaspoon salt, mint and mushrooms; lower heat and stir for about 3 minutes.

 Step 3
In a large bowl, combine tomato paste and broth; pour liquid and basil to pot. Simmer over very low heat for about 2 hours, stirring occasionally.

 Step 4
Bring a large pot of water to a vigorous boil with 3 tablespoons salt and 1 teaspoon olive oil. Slip spaghetti into water holding on to ends until strands soften a bit. Cook over high heat for 7 to 8 minutes only. When properly cooked, raw taste should be gone but still have a firm texture.

 Step 5
When ready to serve, combine pasta with meat sauce; serve on a warmed platter or bowl topped with parsley and Romano cheese.
