How To Cook Spaghetti – Two Add sauces, One Pull Out Recipe
How to cook spaghetti at home can be a trial and error process. If you are not used to cooking meals on your own, it can feel very uncomfortable. However, with just a few tips, you can transform a meal that comes straight from the box into something that looks and tastes delicious. This article will focus on one method that many people enjoy and one that you should definitely try if you haven’t already. I call this technique “building on top of the sauce” because all of the flavor and fresh ingredients really come from the sauce that is added to the noodles before they are cooked.
The easiest way to cook an easy spaghetti recipe at home is through the use of ground beef. Just drain the excess grease away from the meat and cut it into thin pieces. Then, add the rest of the ingredients to your spaghetti and let it simmer on top of the meat until it reduces and becomes al dente. About an hour and a half are all it takes to prepare a delicious dinner.
Another idea that you can use to cut down on cooking time is to add a bit of squash to your recipe.
Since squash comes in different shapes and sizes, you will want to be sure to buy enough to create the right texture and thickness in your sauce. I typically add about one or two cups of squash per pound of meat. You can purchase the meat at your local grocery store or even go online to find a brand that is known for a high-quality product. You will also need to adjust the cooking time according to the package instructions and then add water to help thin out the sauce.
Now that we have created our delicious spaghetti, it’s time to make our tomato sauce. To do this, you will simply need a bowl, a measuring cup, and a tablespoon of olive oil. Once you have everything ready, you will just mix two cups of water and a teaspoon of salt to form a thick paste. Next, you will add this mixture to your already prepared pan and gently heat it over medium heat. You will then stir it until it becomes completely blended and then remove it from the heat.
After your spaghetti has finished cooking, it is time to stir it. This is best done by turning the stove off and then stirring the spaghetti in a saucepan.
This should be done about two minutes before your pasta is ready. Then, add in your seasonings and allow them to steep for about five minutes before you place them in the boiling water. Stir to mix everything well and then turn off the heat.
If your spaghetti remains firm, then it is now time to serve it. The key here is to keep it hot until it is desired al dente. If it begins to dry out, then just turn it back on the stove and let it finish cooking for another five minutes before serving. Remember that different brands and types of noodles cook at different rates. If yours does not, it is best to leave it undercooked to avoid starch loss during the cooking process.
Now that your spaghetti is almost ready, it is time to add your favorite sauces. If you are using a brand that does not contain oil, then you may consider only using tomato sauce.
Another option would be to add a little bit of olive oil to your cooked spaghetti. This will give it a nice shiny appearance and make your sauce taste even better. Before serving, stir your sauce into your bowl and then top with your cooked noodles and your favorite toppings.
When your noodles are completely cooked, then it is now time to stir them in the bottom of your serving glass. To do this, you must begin by gathering all of your smaller strands of pasta. Then, add about two tablespoons of olive oil to each of your two stems and place them in a pot over medium heat. Cover them and then begin to stir. Over the next several minutes, you will want to gently stir your spaghetti mixture so that the starch residue is reduced and the sauce is fully incorporated.
