This homemade recipe we've been making for years and was handed down to us by... someone. Adding smoked bacon is what gives it the (I'm doing the Italian kiss-fingertips-and-toss-away gesture), wonderful flavour! We sprinkled a bit of shredded mozzarella cheese on top for extra goodness!


(Serves 4) 

  • 600 g of fresh GROUND BEEF
  • 400 g of dried SPAGHETTI
  • 3 tbsp of BUTTER
  • 1/4 tsp SALT(or to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp PEPPER (or to taste)
  • 180 ml of TOMATO PASTE (about 6-8 tbsps) 
  • 6 slices of SMOKED BACON cut up
  • 2-3 tsps of (your favourite) spaghetti SPICES
  • 600 ml WATER 


1. Melt around 3 tbsp of butter in a pot.

2. Add ground beef and brown.
3. Toss in cut bacon. Cook for a few mins.

4. Add tomato paste and water. Cover and simmer over medium heat for about 45 mins.

5. Voila! You're done. Spread over your favourite pasta or good old spaghetti and sprinkle with cheese if desired.
