Hi anybody know. Appreciate to share.
Hi there, there are many ready made sauce off the shelves. I love buying the Bolognese sauce, it tastes good and my son loves it. You just need to boil the spaghetti, fry the diced large onion and minced chicken together. Once the meat is cooked, add in the Bolognese sauce, stir fry for a while. Drain the spaghetti once cooked, then top it with the sauce mixture and some cheese.
You can go to http://allrecipes.com/Recipes/Main.aspx
You can find lots of receipes that you want.

If you need to buy the instant ready Spaghetti sauce I would recommand "Prego" brand is the best taste so far for me.
thank you Redjn and Mackin.
I will cook this Sunday.
I find that cooking the pasta till almost done but not fully done first then simmering it in whatever sauce you have for a while gives it a better taste as oppose to just dumping the cooked sauce on the pasta.
how about spaghetti, which brand is nice. there are many brand and different type
Me too, prego is a nice brand, however recently my sis in law recommended me this sauce brand called BERTOLLI vidalia onion with roasted garlic, it's very nice, not too sour.
As for the brand of the spaghetti, MAICAR cos it get cook pretty fast and the texture is better to me, after trying out other brands.
For spaghetti brand, i use San Remo. Normally will buy the Angel hair type cos it cooks in 2 minutes.
I just went to NTUC to buy "Prego" sauce but there are many types like Traditional, Mushroom & garlic, Fresh mushroom, Roasted garlic.
I choose the Traditional one. Is it nice.
I'm not very particular about spaghetti brand as long as any brand is cheap i will use that. If I'm not wrong most of the time I bought this brand "Maicar" as it's 1 of the cheapest. There was another brand but I can't remember the name of it, it's red in colour pack. I'm very particular about the sauce, come to think of it Leggo's also not bad If I cant get Prego. My personal dislike brand is Raguletto, this is very light in taste maybe can describe as tasteless.
You can add mushrooms, meatballs, onions to the traditional one when you cook your spaghetti, gladys.

Thanks everyone for sharing.
I have cooked the spaghetti and my husband said that it is not bad. My children also praise that it is yummy.
Do you make pizza yourself. My children also like to eat pizza. care to share
Yup I made the pizza crust myself, go to my blog, the recipes and the methods with pics are all there. Just uploaded couple weeks ago. www.cinnlove2cook.blogspot.com
You can also go to Flickr: Cinncold's Photostream to see the different pizzas I've made...seafood, BBQ chicken and Hawaiian pizzas.
As for the pizza base sauce for hawaiian and seafood pizzas, I went to buy prego traditional sauce mixed with pizza sauce which I found in Giant. As for the BBQ chicken pizza, I bought Heniz BBQ sauce with honey & Garlic then I mixed it with some prego traditional sauce for the base.
This is how I cook pasta.
Add oil and salt in water, and wait till it boil
Spread pasta in the boiling water.
Stir occasionally so that pasta dont't stick together. Oil will make a good seperator too.
Drain the water and then, soak in water with ice.
Stir-fry garlic together with ingredients.
Then, add in sauce first, then pasta.
That's how I cook pasta. And I love cooking them, cos it's easy and yummy!
Hope you enjoy your pasta cooking session. (:
For home make tomato sauce, for pasta or pizza.Tomato sauce there is no fix way of doing. The basic , you need pomodori which is whole peeled tomato,blend it to puree form.cook it with olive oil,you can add whatever you like to enchance the flavour of your tomato sauce..etc.minced garlic,dried herds(basil is nice/to make bolognese you can use oregano) slice mushroom, seafood and the list can go on..just rememeber for pizza sauce it must be more thick in texture...use your createvilty add whatever you like
side-track a little, how do you make meatballs to go with the spaghetti?? thanks
Just to add a note for those interested in making the tomato sauce from scratch - I noticed that tomatoes here and tomatoes abroad, especially from Europe, taste different. Tomatoes there are much sweeter compared to here and thus, are more flavourful when cooked. Normally the key is to use fresh tomatoes and cook till it's soft but since the tomatoes here are not very yummy, stick to canned tomatoes instead.
If making tomato sauce from scratch, as someone correctly pointed out - tomatoes here are not sweet, so compensate by adding a little sugar (add sparingly and taste before adding more). Adding a little balsamic vinegar, olives, capers, tabasco sauce also adds some variation for a change.
To make meatballs this is what I do - in a large bowl, add 500g minced meat (chicken, pork, beef or even a mixture), 4 slices of bread (that was soaking in a saucer of milk/water - squeeze out the liquid and add only the softened bread), 1 beaten egg, 2 tablespoons of tomato ketchup, 1 teaspoon of worcheshire sauce, half-1 teaspoon of mustard (optional), half teaspoon of salt, 2 cloves of garlic (minced), 1 teaspoon of ginger juice (grate ginger and squeeze out juice), half minced or finely chopped onion. Mix well and let it rest for at least half an hour.
When frying, shape into small balls, roll lightly in rice flour and deep fry till brown and cooked through.
Variations - you can also pan fry or even bake these.
