Spaghetti Bolognese with Spanish Chorizos, Hot Salami & Mushrooms

Seriously only takes 10-15 minutes to cook!
I know I have pretty much neglected my food blog ever since my son was born in December - I have instead been updating my baby blog with all of his developments, posting up his photos, etc. It doesn't mean at all that my passion for food is gone! No way that will never happen as long as I still need food to live. It just means that hubby and I have mostly been living off frozen meals, meals prepared by friends and family, and takeaway. Occasionally I manage to whip up something simple for a nice change e.g. make a fresh salad, steam some veggies, grill some fish, etc so we don't go crazy bored over the same frozen meals night after night.

I have also rediscovered my love for sushi and have been a lot of sashimi and California Rolls lately. Imagine digging back into sushi after 10 months of being deprived (pregnant women are not allowed to eat raw fish) - it was HEAVEN!

Despite it being summer here in Australia though, the past couple of days have been really cold and wet. That's Melbourne. You can easily experience all 4 seasons in a year within a few days. So I've decided to cook up a fresh plate of a classic pasta dish with a slight twist. Inspired by our friends who have now fed us a few times with their version of spaghetti bolognese with mince, salami and olives - I've decided to cook my favorite sausage Spanish Chorizos and Hot Salami and add mushrooms to the ready to go Leggo's Bolognese Chunky Pasta Sauce with Tomato, Garlic and Herbs.

When the sauce is tossed with freshly cooked spaghetti and topped with some Parsley flakes - the result is a delicious SPICY version of Spaghetti Bolognese, perfect for those who love a bit of spice in their food.

I know this is not exactly a recipe, but the fact that it only took me 10-15 minutes to prepare AND cook this dish means that anyone who is ever in a hurry (e.g. a new mother perhaps?) would hopefully appreciate this blog post.

Hopefully my little baby boy settles into a more solid routine soon with longer sleeps so I can cook up something special for my blog again! Unless of course, you don't mind me posting recipes for my Tuna Bake casserole which is basically cooked pasta tossed with Tuna Chunks and Leggo's Tuna Bake Sauce in a casserole dish sprinkled with grated cheese on top and cooked in the oven at 180C for 15 minutes? Nahh.. I didn't think so :p


  1. ooh you're running a mummy blog too!

  2. I would love to check your mommy blog one of this days too, but for now this dishes is making me hungry:)

  3. I think we are finally in for some winter weather and I think of pasta when it is cold and snowy. I am definitely going to give this spicy dish a go! (Didn't know about the mommy blog so I will head over there now!)

  4. Glad to see you back at it! Congrats again on the birth of your little one!

  5. Life always comes first! I can relate to the busyness of it all - although we don't have a little one yet!
