Spaghetti Bolognese

Ingredients :
400 gms beef mince
4 strips of Bacon chopped finely
2 slices of ham chopped finely
500 gms Spaghetti ( I used Barilla - size 13.)
2 inch piece of ginger minced
8 flakes of garlic minced
5 green chilies minced
2 packs of KDD tomato paste
1 tsp black pepper powder
1 tsp dry rosemary
5 big onions finely chopped
3 tsp dry oregano
1 tsp salt
5 tbsp tomato ketchup
1/2 cup of water
6 tbsp oil
1 tsp sugar

Method of Preparation : Heat the oil in a large saucepan and fry the bacon until golden over a medium heat. Add the onions, garlic, ginger and chilies, frying until soft. Add the tomato paste, stir it and now add the dry spices (black pepper, oregano and Rosemary). Fry for 2-3 minutes. Add the beef mince and ham, now add the salt and sugar. Add water, stir and cover the lid. Let it simmer over slow heat for 20 minutes until the sauce is thickened. Keep stirring in between.

Now Cook the spaghetti in plenty of salted boiling water for 15-17 minutes. Drain and leave it aside.
Serve the pasta with the bolognese sauce and sprinkle some parmesan cheese over it and enjoy.
