Lamb Spinach Spaghetti

When it comes to food, we truly love Asian dishes with lots of chillies paired with rice for daily meals. Besides rice, noodles are also included for weekend lunch when I don't feel like cooking an elaborated meal. Dinner then can be anywhere including at neighbourhood coffee shops. Noodle dishes too must be spicy or accompanied with a spicy fiery dip (prawn mee hoon soup). 

Spaghetti is not something we like but suppose its okay once a while. Still I wouldn't make a Western style spaghetti dish for that has never been and will never be what we like to eat. So I made this Asian style lamb spinach spaghetti with green chillies and paprika. Yes! its a spicy loveable dish as how we like.

Spaghetti as needed - cook as packet instructions.
1 large onion
1 inch ginger
3 green chillies
2 tomatoes
** These ingredients to be chopped
1 small can tomato puree
2 bay leaves
2 sprigs fresh rosemary 
2 tbsp olive oil
Paprika and salt for taste
Grated parmesan cheese
1 small bunch spinach - cut into long pieces

Blanch spinach and keep aside (or follow as per the instruction on the packet)
When oil is heated, sauté onion, ginger and chilies.
Add minced lamb,bay leaves and rosemary.
Stir to break up lamb (about 3-4 minutes).
Add chopped tomatoes and stir in. 
Pour tomato puree.
Season with paprika and salt.
If you like more gravy, pour some water.  
When the sauce starts to simmer, remove from heat.
Place spaghetti and spinach in a serving plate.
Pour sauce over and sprinkle with cheese.
