Mince Spaghetti Recipe


Although macaroni always had a place in Amma’s shopping list – it was not until the early nineteen nineties that she‘tentatively’ began  cooking spaghetti. The first time I ever encountered spaghetti – was while reading The Magic Pasta Pot by Tomie dePaola. I must have been around 8 years old at the time – after reading the book I assumed spaghetti might have tasted like vermicelli – but it was only 2 or 3 years later that I got to taste spaghetti.  Naturally Amma’s spaghetti was ‘curry pasta’.

This recipe is inspired by Amma’s curry pasta –  a spicy – simple  alternative to Bolognaise sauce-
