Spaghetti Bolognaise

This is another signature dish in my kitchen. Of course the rating is superbly high which obviously given by my girls... The kids love it & I'm sure most moms will love it too. It is very simple to prepare!! I've experimented the pasta sauce a couple of times & this is the one for my family. It might not be the traditional Italian recipe. Mine is quick but still is full with nutrition.

Heat olive oil in a pan. As usual, I do lots of sauteing in my recipe. Saute chopped onions for a few seconds & then add in minced beef into the pan.

Cover the pan & let simmer for a couple of minutes. Next is to join in chopped carrots. Cover again for a short while to let the carrots softened.

I use Prego pasta sauce. I prefer "Traditional" but it was out of stock. Instead, I settled with "Fresh Mushroom". Scoop in the sauce as required, put into the pan & cover again.

Next is to add in some chopped mushrooms. Unfortunately, I ran out of mushroom.

I then put in chopped celery. The tip is to chop the celery into small cubes so that kids have no choice but to eat it. If your child is very picky about vegetables, what you can do is to blend the carrots & celery together with the sauce.

Most of the celery was already in the pan, I forgot to snap the photo before the celery taking a dip in the sauce.

Sprinkle a little bit of thyme.

Salt & sugar to taste. Cover again for 5 minutes & your sauce is ready.

Let me present you... my Spaghetti Bolognaise.
