Spaghetti Blog-naise Quick and Easy Recipe

Last Saturday my wife the talented cook decided to whip up some spaghetti for lunch, and I decided to photograph and blog about it. This is a quick recipe that you can prepare in less than 20 minutes.

Before I begin, I know some purists out there will say that this isn’t pure spaghetti bolognese (or bolognaise if you’re French). That’s why I call it Spaghetti Blog-naise a special pasta recipe for bloggers 🙂


You need:

  • Pasta (spaghetti)
  • Tomato Paste
  • Corned Beef / Minced Beef / Beef Burger Patty
  • Ketchup
  • 1 Onion
  • 2 Tomatoes
  • 1 Can Campbell Cheese and Herbs
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt


  1. Cut up your onion and tomatoes into cubes


Put the spaghetti soaking water into a pot and bring to a boil. Remember to cover the pot, and you can reduce the heat once it starts to boil (Another tip, once water reaches boiling, additional heat is wasted)

Heat up your oil in a pan and start frying your onions and tomatoes.

Put in your meat and make sure it gets cooked.

Add your tomato paste. We used half a jar. Add some ketchup, then stir to make a consistent sauce.

Once the water is boiling, put in your spaghetti. It will be ready in 3 or 4 minutes.

When the sauce starts to simmer, add in some Campbells Cheese and Herb Mix. As an alternative you may add cheese later.

Serve while hot.

  1. I always add a pinch of salt to the boiling water for the spaghetti, then when I drain out the water, I add a little olive oil/margarine.

    Hey, I notice your pot is a heart-shaped one! That is SO cool!

    Adino: Good idea, that will lower the boiling point of the water right? The pot isn’t heart shaped haha… maybe from this angle it looks like that. It’s actually a pot with those lips at the side so you can pour out the contents easily.

  2. I like the recipe – bookmarking it. Is there a vegetarian alternative?

    Adino: Hmm, not sure about a vegetarian alternative. Perhaps will be able to help you?

  3. You make-a me a-hungry!

    I’m not so sure about the ketchup, but I’ll try anything once.

    Adino: Hehe, I’m sure you have better recipes that this!

  4. To give a tomato-sauce a typical italian taste I recommend to boil ca. 5 tomatos for a minute (after that it’s easy to pull off the peel) and take these tomatos instead of the paste.

    Adino: Thanks for the tip!
