Meat Ball Spaghetti Bolognese

This is what I cooked for lunch in line with our "no rice" Sunday. It's nothing new, but it still remains as our favorite dish since I started to cook. :) I used too add different ingredients to it. For example, potato, fresh brown mushroom or white button mushroom. But today, I just stick to the original taste as I don't have any fresh mushroom in the fridge. Also, I back to Maggie premix sauce rather than Prego, cuz I found that it is thicker. one suggestion from hubby that may be I should try to cook seafood spaghetti next time. Ok, provided he sponsors fresh raw seafood then. Haha...

Meat Ball Spaghetti Bolognese
Serves 2


200 gm of egg spaghetti
200gm minced pork meat (you can use either beef, pork or chicken)
1 teaspoon of salt
a small bowl of Canola oil & some extra virginn olive oil

A) Marinate ingredients:

2 tablespoon of light soy sauce
2 tablespoon of chopped shallots
1 egg
Dash of white pepper

B) Sauce

1 packet of Maggie bolognese sauce mix.
Remark: the sauce mix is the serving for 4 person. However, I find it just enough for 2, as I like more sauce.
1 1/2 cup of water
half onion, sliced
1 tablespoon of chopped garlic
2 tbsp ketchup
1 tbsp light soy sauce


1. Marinate minced pork with A). Let it stand for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

2. Heat some Canola oil in a wok. Scoop minced pork into balls using a teaspoon and fry in the wok. Keep the fire to medium.

3. Remove fried meat balls and set aside.

4. Bring a pot of water to boil. Add 1 teaspoon of salt to the boiling water. Add spaghetti and cook for 8 minutes (refer to instruction on the packing) and drain.

5. Heat 2 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil in a wok. Fry sliced onion and chopped garlic until fragrant.

6. Pour in water, and add the Maggie mix. Stir and bring to boil.

7. Reduce heat, partially cover and simmer for 15 minutes until the sauce thickens.

8. On a plate, add cooked spaghetti, and put few meat balls on top.

9. Scoop the sauce and pour on top of the spaghetti.
