For busy professionals like me who work ten or more hours a day, eating out is often the easiest way to fit meals into my daily schedules. But I still adore the thrill of whipping my own meals and weekends are often the best time to get my hands dirty and try out new recipes.
I decided to ‘activate’ my cousin Gillian to join in the fun! After a quick trip at our nearby supermarket, we are all ready to get started!
We will be preparing a healthy Whole-meal Bolognese Spaghetti topped with Perfect Italiano Mozzarella Cheese that’s melted and stretched to perfection as well as a freshly tossed Nanyang Garden Salad sprinkled with generous topping of chewy Perfect Italiano Mozzarella Cheese Cubes!
Let’s get started with the bolognese sauce for our spaghetti. There goes the bolognese sauce into our pot of minced pork.
Patiently stir until the minced pork and the sauce are well mixed into a smooth concoction. Heat the pot over a medium fire and keep stirring to ensure even cooking and to prevent the sauce at the bottom of the pot from getting burnt.
Just minutes before the sauce is ready, throw in the green capsicum for the extra crunch.
You can choose to add in a variety of mushrooms too. Nothing is casted in stone; feel free to experiment with different ingredients.
For our spaghetti, we got the whole-meal version, which is supposed to be healthier. We regretted our choice eventually. Our verdict – anything that’s healthy taste yucky. Make sure you have sufficient water for the spaghetti to be fully immersed. Once the water is boiling, add about 2 tablespoon of coarse salt or 1/4 cup of table salt.
Diligently stir within the first 2 minutes of cooking pasta to keep the pasta from sticking together. Once that is done, place the lid back on the pot to help bring the water back to a boil. When the water start boiling again, remove the lid for the remaining cook time to prevent the pasta from boiling over. This is where you need to actually stand there and watch the pot.
Once the spaghetti is ready, serve it up with a scoop of our delicious homemade bolognese sauce. And sprinkle our star product – Perfect Italiano Grated Mozzarella Cheese generously for the finishing touch!
The cheese tasted heavenly once it’s fully melted. Next, we turned our attention to our salad. We took a block of Perfect Italiano Mozzarella Cheese and cut it up into small, easy bite size cubes. Keep a close eye on your assistants as these chewy cheese cubes are extremely addictive! We need to conserve these cubes for the salad.
Assemble our fresh fresh ingredients such as lettuce, cherry tomatoes, sweet corn, sliced carrots, boiled eggs and lychee into a generous bowl, position our Perfect Italiano Mozzarella Cheese as the centrepiece and our Nanyang (Very Localised Singapore Style) Garden Salad is all ready!
Line the salad with Thousand Island Sauce or Olive Oil, give it a good toss and the salad is good to go!
There you have it, two simple dishes accomplished in less than half an hour time! I hope you find our experience useful and may it inspire you to start cooking with Perfect Italiano Mozzarella Cheese from home. I will like to give special thanks to my cousin Gillian for helping me out with the cooking.
