Spaghetti is my go-to meal. I open the cupboards and literally unload every unused vegetable – with generally great results. I thought I might share some of the strange things that I’ve thrown into a pot of spaghetti sauce.
Every sauce starts the same – ground meat (beef, pork, or turkey), diced tomatoes (canned or fresh), chopped onion, and lots of spices. Then things get a little creative.
In the past I’ve tried:
- Frozen vegetables – literally any kind – spaghetti ones are the best, but tonight I used the remains of a package of beans/carrotts/broccoli
- chopped cabbage
- spinach (fresh or frozen)
- beans – I’ve tried black beans and chick peas
- beet greens
- hot peppers
Don’t ask how I left hot peppers to last – considering these are my favourite addition to the sauce! Most spaghetti dishes will require a tall glass of milk to balance out my over-spicing, but I can’t help myself.
What is your favourite spaghetti addition?
