A really nice recipe, even if your not a great fan of broccoli (so has been said by others). And really fast, so ideal when you have a work day. I've got a lot of great reactions on this recipe. Maybe it's the combination of the salty bacon, the sweet onion and the pepper from the olive oil.
Is there something that would make this recipe even better? Yes, when you make your own spaghetti. But that's something for another blogpost.
One tip: the pan is really clean after I make the amount in this recipe for 3 adults and 3 children below 10.
For the recipe:
- 1 kg broccoli;
- 250 grams bacon slices;
- 500 grams minced meat;
- 1 small onion;
- olive oil, extra vierge;
- 500 grams spaghetti;
- parmesan at taste.
Slice the onion very thin. Cut the broccoli in small pieces. Put two pans with water on the stove and let the water cook (make sure you've got one big pan). In the meanwhile put a frying pan with the bacon on medium gas for about 5 minutes. Add the onion and bake for another 5 minutes. Then add the minced meat and bake it until it's nice brown. Put aside.
Cook the broccoli in the smallest pan for about 7 minutes until done. Drain and set aside. In the largest pan cook spaghetti conform the manufacturers direction. Drain the spaghetti en put it back in the large pan. Pour a little olive oil on the spaghetti and add the broccoli and minced meat/bacon mixture. Mix well.
Put it on a plate and add the parmesan at taste.
