When I make spaghetti bolognaise I brown in a pan either my meatball recipe or kofta recipe (they will follow soon). Then I add a jar of Bolognaise Sauce (Dolmio is my favourite) and turn the heat down and put a lid half on and let it bloop for about half and hour on low heat. I use fresh pasta from the chilled section which boils up in 4 minutes. All of this makes a really nice bolognaise dinner, but now bring on the yuuuummmm. I serve it with home made bread sticks which my kids love!
For the dough I use a single portion of pizza dough in the Panasonic Breadmaker:
½ tsp yeast
300g (11 oz) Strong Bread Flour
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
170 ml water
After 45 minutes in the machine the dough is done and ready to be made into bread sticks. First get a baking sheet and butter well.
I like to use a marble slab for working with dough. A rolling device and a dough scraper are nice equipment to have when working dough.
Flour the slab and the dough quite well and roll out to a rectangle.
Then use the dough scraper to cut strips in the dough. Never use anything but plastic or wood on a marble slab otherwise you may scratch grooves which will ruin the surface.
After you have cut all the strips move them to the buttered sheet.
Put them in a warm place to raise for about ½ and hour (and no they will not double in size, but it makes them nice on the inside). In the mean time crank up your oven to the highest temperature it will go and put a rack on the top shelf.
After they have raised a bit then whack them in the hot oven for 15 minutes or until they are browned and crispy on the edges and soft on the inside.
Now all we have to do is plate this sucker up and EAT….
