spaghetti meatballs

After making the meatballs
it is time to cook the spaghetti and its sauce
I don't really have a specific recipe for making the sauce
whatever is available in the fridge will find its way into the cooking pot :)
please click here for my simple recipe on making the meatballs  

To cook the spaghetti and its sauce;

in a medium size pot, fill it halfway with water and bring it to boil before adding the spaghetti

let it cook for 15 mins or longer depending on your desired thickness

and while waiting for the spaghetti to cook 

heat a medium sized pot on the next stove and pour in 3 Tbsp of cooking oil

saute 3 sliced shallots + 2 crushed garlic + 1 tsp chili paste + 1 tsp salt till the chili gets crispy

then add in 2 tsp tomato paste + dash of black pepper ...keep stirring

then add in 2 cut tomatoes + 1 cut celery stalk + 1/2 sliced yellow bell pepper + 1/4 cup water

cook all vegetables till tender

check the spaghetti and if it is well cooked, drain water from the pot

get back to the sauce and taste for saltiness before adding in the meatballs

stir the meatballs thoroughly for 1 min to allow it to soak in the sauce

then add in the cooked spaghetti

mix thoroughly until the sauce evenly coats the spaghetti

off the fire and grate Parmesan cheese over the spaghetti and mix well

serve hot 

squeeze fresh lemon juice over the spaghetti just before eating

bon appetit!!
