Minced beef with macaroni

Minced beef with macaroni


½ kg minced beef

1 onion

2-3 ripe tomatoes

½ glass of red wine

½ kg macaroni (use spaghetti)

½ cup oil

Salt, pepper



Heat the oil in a pan and add the minced meat. Stir for a few minutes, add the finely chopped onion and sauté all together. Pour over the wine and add the finely chopped tomatoes. Season, and if necessary add a little water. Cover the pan and leave the meat to cook over a moderate heat, until it is tender in the sauce. Meanwhile, boil the macaroni in a large quantity of salted water. Drain, and if liked, ‘singe’ with a little oil (heat a little oil to a high temperature in a pan, turn off the heat and add the macaroni, stirring so that it is all coated with the oil). Serve the macaroni on a plate with the meat sauce poured over it.
