Spaghetti In Meat Sauce

I have started feeding Angel with another new food - tomatoes since last month and today, I have decided to cook her a new menu - Spaghetti in Meat Sauce (one of my favourite dish :P). The ingredient for the meat sauce is very simple, just skin the tomatoes and blended in into puree, do the same with the onions and meat as well. Then stir fried the onions and mince until half cooked, add in the tomato puree and few tablespoons of water, shimmer for another 10 minutes, add in 2 spoonful of Ketchup and it’s done! I do not add in other seasoning other then half a teaspoon of sugar because the tomatoes which I got are a bit sour for my liking. Maybe I should opt for cherry tomatoes which are less sour in taste next time?


I am glad that Angel loves her Spaghetti in Meat Sauce a lot. She does choke a bit on the mince meat because they tend to get stuck on the throat easily. Maybe I should have cut the meat into tiny chunk rather then mince them. Oh, too bad that Angel hasn’t outgrown her intolerance against cow milk products as yet or else, a dash of parmesan cheese and will surely taste heavenly good on those spaghetti, yum yum :)

Looks really yummy leh. It's so healthy coz you pureed the tomatoes yourself. Maybe the tomatoes not ripe enough? Usually I see cooking program they use the big tomatoes wor.

Angel really enjoying it. She can finish the big bowl?

Looks super delicious!~

Yummy...Spaghetti. Your favorite dish ya. Then you must be very expert in preparing it.

Hmmm, you like less sour taste?? You can try to blend carrot + tomato + celery. The taste is quite good and very healthy too. :)

Serene said...

Can I have some too?? Haha.. Oh I see.. Angel is allergic towards cows milk product? No wonder you say she cannot take cheese... nvm la, i think your spaghetti itself without cheese is more than delicous already! Angel's smiley face could tell =)

I never cook spaghetti for Yan Yan... It sounds easy to prepare wohh! Must try it out 1 day!

MommyAngel said...

Rahcel, hehehe …. I think adult version taste much better :)

Mummy Gwen, hhmm …. I think the tomatoes are more then ripe coz the colour is so red already. Ya …. Those big tomatoes will be sweeter I think but very hard to find it in the market. Yup, she finished the whole lot :)

PeiWun, thanks.

Natalia, yes, my favourite dish :) I have read so much of good stuff about Spaghetti in Meat Sauce (the nutrition values and the combination of it) so I will make it one of the fortnightly dish for Angel if possible. Oh …. Carrot + tomato + celery? Is it to make the spaghetti sauce or it’s a different sauce? Sounds good to me and I will surely try that out :) No need to add anything else?

Serene, Thanks :)

Mummy Moon, yes, the preparation is easy as ABC :) Have a try then and good luck :)

Looks yummy!! I love spaghetti too.

Esmeralda said...

Another great recipe for Angel. I see that she loves feeding herself, and loves the spaghetti as well. Did u cut the spaghetti to smaller pieces, or did u cook it for a little bit longer than usual so as to soften it for her to chew & swallow?

Kristie said...

hahaha i like her red 'lipstick' hehehe :) she sure loves ur cooking dear mummy!

MommyAngel said...

Doreen, thanks :)

Esmeralda, yes …. She refused us to feed her now. Yes, I did cut the spaghetti into shorter strips but not very short as for her to practice with long strips food. Yes, I cook the spaghetti twice the time as required on the package so it’s basically soft enough to chew even with those gums.

Kristie, lipsticks, hehehe ….. actually looks kinda cute right when kids ate this way, hehehe. So pure and naïve oh …. I love that picture a lot actually !! :P :P
