Spaghetti with Veal, Wine and Cream
One of my favorite food of all time is actually Pasta and any kind of meal from this family, but it had to be spacial. I am not a big fan of simple spaghetti and tomato sauce only. this is one the special ones for me. the inspiration comes from a recipe of " Tagliatelle with veal, wine and cream" from the book called "30 minutes meals, a commonsense guide". the original recipe used veal scaloppine cut in strips, white wine and at the end the sauce comes white . I made my own modifications to the recipe and had no idea how it would turn out at the end . but fortunately it is was delicious, so hope you guys try it and enjoy it as well.
( serves 4)
Ground veal: 500 g
Chili powder: 2 teaspoon
Butter : 2 tablespoon
Onion: 1 medium size sliced in long lean stripes
Red wine: 1/2 cup
Tomato paste: 2 tablespoon
Salt: as much you like
Cooking cream: 2/3 cup
Spaghetti : 600g
Italian Parsley : as much as you like
Green onion sliced and Parmesan cheese to garnish
In frying pan add small amount of extra virgin olive oil with 1 tablespoon of butter ( the oil is to prevent the butter from burning). add the ground veal and chili powder and quickly fry till slightly browned.
remove the veal from the pan or use another clean one, coat the pan with butter the same as before and add onion slices to the pan and stir till soft and golden. pour the tomato paste mix well and add the wine. cook rapidly to reduce the liquid. add salt, cream and parsley ,mix well for 1-2 minutes.
Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a large sauce pan of boiling salted water till done. Drain well and keep it warm. serve the pasta with your meat sauce and garnish with green onion and Parmesan cheese.
