My dinner today is seashell pasta with meat sauce

I’m almost annoyed my son loves pasta with meat sauce so much that he seems incapable of getting bored with it but then again who doesn’t love pasta with meat sauce. You’ve seen this recipe here before, only this time I picked seashell pasta for fun, used diced tomatoes instead of tomato sauce and mixed the meat sauce with the pasta well before serving.  I added 1 tablespoon oatmeal to cook with the meat sauce for fiber.



  • 1 packet seashell pasta
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound (half kilo) minced meat
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • half cup red wine
  • 2-3 ripe tomatoes diced
  • salt, pepper, oregano
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • (optional) 1 tablespoon oatmeal

How to make: Boil the pasta in salted water according to packet instructions. Drain, rinse, put back in the pot and add half a tablespoon of olive oil.  In a saucepan, heat one tablespoon of oil and saute the onion at low heat for a few minutes. Add the minced meat and saute until the meat is brown, about 5 minutes. Add the wine and cook for a couple more minutes to allow the wine to evaporate. Then add the tomato cubes, maybe a bit more water if needed,  salt, pepper, oregano and one cinammon stick. Cook for half an hour. Remove the cinnamon stick, mix well with the seashell pasta and serve with grated Parmesan.
