Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.


Cucina Rustica: Spaghetti Bolognaise

main dish, beef, italian

3 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 carrot, finely diced
1 celery stalk, finely diced
1 lb ground beef
1 cup white wine
1/2 cup milk
1 1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon pepper
1 pinch nutmeg
28 oz canned tomatoes, chopped
2 tablespoon tomato paste
1 bay leaf
12 oz spaghetti
1 parmesan, freshly grated
1 fresh parsley, chopped

In large heavy saucepan, heat oil over medium-low heat; cook onion, garlic, carrot and celery, stirring, for about 5 minutes or until softened. Add beef; cook, stirring to break up, for about 10 minutes or just until no longer pink, being careful not to brown. Drain off fat. Pour in wine; increase heat to medium-high and cook, stirring occasionally, until wine has evaporated. Add milk, salt, pepper and nutmeg; cook, stirring, until milk has evaporated. Add tomatoes, tomato paste and bay leaf; bring to boil. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 hours or until thickened. Discard bay leaf. Meanwhile, in large pot of boiling salted water, cook spaghetti for 8-10 minutes or until tender but firm; drain well. In warmed serving bowl, toss spaghetti with half of the sauce. Top with remaining sauce. Sprinkle with Parmesan and parsley to taste. Nutritional info not provided in article.
