We love eating spaghetti, so she often cooks it up and improvises in the kitchen with meat and tomato sauce. This is where the spaghetti is perfect for me, and I don’t need anything to satisfy even the most seasoned gourmets. Good quality ingredients will always be the basis.
How to choose the best ingredients for The best meat sauce for spaghetti
Meat: The meat we use is the basis for good taste, best if we grind them ourselves, then it is best to use such parts of the meat so that they are not too greasy. For me, the best proportions are when you give 250 grams of pork and 250 grams of beef.
Pepper: The best pepper is large, red or yellow because it looks nice in the sauce. Green peppers are not suitable for this recipe because they have a slightly bitter taste.
Onion: The onions can be white or brown of medium size.
Passata: Passata is an Italian tomato sauce, and this is the best version of our tomato sauce. You can use tomato paste and then add more water to thin it, but I encourage you to use passata because it is perfect for the sauce.
Tips and tricks

- You can prepare the sauce for 2-3 days. After that, you can store it in a sealed container in the refrigerator. The pasta mustn’t be stored with the sauce.
- You can use the sauce as a lunch at work if you have space to heat it.
