Spaghetti and the Archers

Archers Spaghetti

Ran home from evening class to hit listen again and snuggled down with Peppermint Tea ….. screamed at the radio for 15 minutes… but Ruth did not sleep with Sam ( phew I can breathe out again ..) …vaguely considered calling my mum but it was like 10.30pm … even considered the Messageboards but have long avoided for fear they could prove addictive . Archers addicition what you gonna do its genetic

In case you are not similarly addicted a lead character was on her way to commit adultery the scene switched between her driving ( interupted by calls for an assignation at an hotel from her potential lover ) and scenes of domestic bliss as the hubby and kids made spagehetti..

Cows in Field.

It made me want spaghetti so tonight made a big pot………….

Archers Spaghetti Sauce

  • 400g Beef Mince
  • 2 large red onions roughly chopped
  • a box of mushrooms roughly chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves chopped
  • 2 tins of tomatoes
  • 2tsp mixed herbs
  • 2 tbsp of sub dried tomatoes chopped
  • half a bottle of red wine
  1. Fry off mince with onions , garlic, mushrooms
  2. Add tomatoes , dried herbs ,salt, pepper olives chopped sun dried tomatoes
  3. add the wine. allow to simmer for at least 45 minutes

I have been making pasta sauce like this since I was 12 years old….. and I still like it the same way with grated cheddar cheese…. I don’t care that it not traditional and I am sure Italians be disgusted as they would with the recipe but for me its all about being able to cook a whole meal for your family …….
