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.

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

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.
