This is really quite simple but never gets old. It is a nice cool treat on a hot summers day and can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Buy: Cordial ( they can range from $2.00-$5.00 but for these home brand cordial will be just fine and a good price at $2.30)
Water- no need to buy, just turn on the tap.
Please note: you can choose to use plastic disposable cups but to make this cheaper just use any glass you wish to use.
Add desired amount of cordial to glass and fill the rest of the glass with water. Put in freezer for about 4-5 hours then dig your way through with a spoon.
I have made this recipe A LOT in my life. And boy do I mean a lot. I have tried to make it all from scratch using tins of tomatoes and adding white wine and at the time I thought it tasted good. Then for some reason I stopped spending hours simmering and crying every single time I had to cut that onion. Not to mention spending a stupid amount of money for one dish.
My partner and I adapted this ridiculously easy meal and it does not even need directions really, you all know what to do but I thought I would include directions anyway. For the record this tastes EXACTLY the same as a sauce made from scratch. And sure you can add your own oregano and basil of spaghetti herbs, but if you do not have that on hand that’s fine too.
-500 grams beef mince (the price is for regular grade mince) Cost: $3.98
-Packet of San Remo spaghetti (500grams) Cost : $2.42
- Jar of Raguletto pasta sauce (you can substitute bolognese sauce for any that takes your liking) Cost : $2.31
TOTAL COST: $8.71
1. Fill a large pan with water and add pasta, with a little bit of salt (and a bit of oil if you wish to stop sticking)
2. Using two teaspoons of oil heat up your frying pan, then add the mince.
3.On a medium to high heat,separate the mince in the frying pan with a spatula and cook through ( I like to make sure 100%)
4.Add the jar of pasta sauce to the frying pan with mince and blend the two ingredients together evenly.
5. Bring your bolognese sauce to a simmer while your pasta cooks.
6. Drain pasta with a colander and either add the pasta sauce through or dish up pasta and add sauce to the top.
