Lamb Spinach Spaghetti


Before I started blogging, I had the habit of cooking the same type of dishes over and over. I didn't even attempt any new recipes because  I was comfortable with those I am good at. Cooking was also like a commitment towards my family which at times I felt that I was forced to do. My family of course appreciates whatever I cook and that again was another reason why I was in my comfort zone. 

But now that I have a blog, I have taken cooking to another level. I create and invent new dishes and that is good thing because I am now feeling the pleasure of learning new cooking technics and how not to waste ingredients.  For this dish, I bought a packet of spaghetti and for the rest, I used what I had at home. 

Its a complete wholemeal meal made with minced lamb, flavored with herbs and topped with cheese.


Ingredients
Spaghetti as needed - cook as packet instructions.
1 large onion
1 inch ginger
1 green chili
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

Method
Blanch spinach and keep aside.
When oil is heated, sauté onion, ginger, and chili.
Add minced lamb,bay leaves and rosemary.
Stir to break up lamb (about 3-4 minutes).
Add chopped tomatoes and stir all the ingredients together.
Pour tomato puree and season with paprika and salt.
If you like more gravy, pour in 1/4 cup of water. 
When the sauce starts to boil, remove from heat.
Place spaghetti and spinach in a serving plate.
Pour sauce over and sprinkle with cheese.
