Spaghetti Bolognese ala Indonesiana

Serves 3

Spaghetti Bolognese is one of Indonesia’s favorite Pasta menus and they like it spicy with a homy Indonesian taste.  For toppings, it would not be Parmesan cheese but shredded Kraft cheddar cheese block. This is what sells in Indonesia. My family usually order it from Pizza Hut Delivery with a pizza, chicken wings, salad and some sodas to go along. Yes, junk food are sent from heaven… 😀

Different from the Spaghetti con Tonno recipe that uses diced can tomatoes, this recipe requires tomato paste, fresh tomatoes and some bottled chili sauce. Now, to get the taste right I will be recommending 2 brands, ABC bottled chili or the Flying Goose Brand ones. If you are in for a tasty and spicy Indonesian version of Spaghetti Bolognese, this has got to be in your menu today.
