Million Dollar Spaghetti

Million Dollar Spaghetti is a delicious variation of spaghetti, resembling lasagna. It is a good idea to let the meat sauce cook for a long time, because then the tomatoes will be sweeter and the sauce will have a rounder taste. If you don't have time to wait, you can add 1 tablespoon of sugar.

250 g spagetti

1 tbsp olive oil

Boil the spaghetti until al dente (with chewing resistance), pour off the water and stir it together with the olive oil. Set aside.

Meat sauce:

400 g chop dough

150 g diced bacon

A little olive oil

2 finely chopped onions

2 cloves finely chopped garlic

1 bottle, or 2 cans of finely chopped tomatoes (preferably Mutti)

2 bay leaves

2 cinnamon bark

1 tbsp tomato puree

2 teaspoons dried basil

2 teaspoons dried oregano

1 ts salt

1 ts pepper

Brown chop dough and bacon in oil. Add onion and garlic and simmer for a few minutes. Add finely chopped tomatoes, tomato puree, sugar, bay leaves, cinnamon bark, basil, oregano, salt and pepper. Let it simmer for 1 hour.

White sauce:

2 tablespoons butter

1 teaspoon nutmeg

2 tablespoons wheat flour

5 dl milk

1 handful of grated parmesan

Melt butter in a saucepan, stir in nutmeg, wheat flour and milk, bring to a boil, stirring constantly, and add Parmesan.
