Eve Can Cook!! - Simple Pasta
So Can You!!

This will be one of the many many series of cooking i will start to blog about.

What i had for lunch today is cheap, minimal wash up required and extremely easy to make. You will need
  1. 1 burger patty/some meat
  2. spaghetti or pasta of your choice
  3. Mushrooms
  4. Cheese
  5. Pasta paste of your choice
  6. Oil
  7. Salt
First, defrost the burger by popping it into the microwave oven for about 4 minutes. Will doing that, boil a pot of water for your pasta.

While waiting for the water to boil, cut the mushrooms into small piece and soak it into warm water.

Add the pasta into the boiling water and some oil and salt. Oil so that the pasta dont stick together. While doing that, cut up the burger into small pieces and throw everything into a heated pan. No oil needed because the burger is oily enough.

Ignore the pasta and let it cook by itself. When you see that the burger are quite cook, dump the mushroom minus the water into the pan and stir for awhile.

Now your view should be something like this. Stir the burger and mushroom till it look cooked and add 3 tablespoon of tomato paste.

Stir about the mixture and add half a cup of water into it. Stir somemore and let it simmer. Remember to stir your pasta about once in awhile too.

When your pasta sauce starts to smell good and it has come to a boiling state, switch off the stove and let it simmer for abit.

Drain the pasta from the boiling water and for me, i'll rinse it with cold water once more. Dump into a bowl or plate. Pour the sauce on top of the pasta and you have yourself a simple and yummy dish!!!

This cost less than 1pd and it's damn filling. You can add cheese on top of it.

Taste better if you have stir-fry the meat with garlic but the garlic is expensive here. I have to go without it :(

I hope you like this recipe!
