Oven Baked Spaghetti with meatballs

Spaghetti is a type of pasta that is shaped like long, thin, round strips or medium thickness threads (1.8-2.4 mm). Spaghetti is made from water, possibly egg, and durum wheat, but other types of flour are also used. The word spaghetti is Italian and has been used in a large number of other languages ​​as this dish has become widespread internationally.

Spaghetti and meat sauce is a well-known dinner. A classic winner in a hectic everyday life, also among the children in the family.

I spend about 40 minutes on this dish here.

You need:

  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 whole onion
  • 400 grams/ 14.1 oz of minced meat
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cans of canned tomatoes about 400 grams/ 14.1 oz
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 500 grams/ 17.6 oz of spaghetti

This is how you do it:

Peel and chop garlic, carrot and onion.
Fry minced meat in olive oil on medium heat until cooked, for 5-8 minutes. Put the meat mixture in a saucepan and add canned tomatoes. Boil up plenty of salted water and cook spaghetti according to the instructions on the package. Make sure to calculate the right time so that the pasta sauce is done at about the same time as the spaghetti.
In the used frying pan, heat the oil and fry carrots, onions and garlic on medium heat for 5-7 minutes. Then add the mixture to the pan with the meat mixture and canned tomatoes. Cook and simmer for at least 10 minutes.

When you mix the spaghetti and pasta sauce together, I take a round oven mold and place the spaghetti in it and put it in the oven for 5 minutes.
When I take the oven mold out I put meatballs over. I also tend to cut, red pepper and spring onions over the dish.

You decide whether you want it in the oven or if you want to serve it, once the pasta sauce is finished.

Calculated for 5 servings.

Pizza with chicken fillets and mushrooms

What is the definition of a pizza and where does it originate? This question has created much debate and disagreement among historians. Some emphasize that it was not only Italians who made pizza, but also the Greeks made flat bread with various ingredients in the 700’s. Others believe the very first pizza that was documented in Naples cannot be considered a real pizza as it was a so-called “white pizza”, without tomato sauce. What we know for sure is that the word “pizza” began to become widely known in Naples in the 17th century and from that time on, the world has never been the same.

I use that approx. 60 min on this dish.

You need:

Pizza Dough:

  • 50 grams/ 1.7 oz of yeast
  • 5 deciliters/ 2.1 cup of lukewarm water
  • 4 tablespoons oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • about. 14 deciliters/ 5.9 cup of wheat flour


  • 6 chicken fillets in strips
  • 2 red peppers
  • 150 grams/ 5.2 oz of mushrooms
  • salt and pepper
  • about. 400 gram/ 14.1 oz mozzarella
  • 75 grams/ 2.6 oz of ruccula
  • 20 red cherry tomatoes
  • 4 tablespoons pizza sauce

This is what you do: Stir the yeast into finger-warm water (37 ° C/
98,6 ° Fahrenheit ) and add oil, salt and wheat flour. Knead the dough well. Let it raise approx. 1/2 hour.

Fry the chicken strips and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Spread the pizza sauce over the pizza base. Divide mozzarella cheese into slices (you can also use cracked cheese), paprika, mushrooms, ruccula and cherry tomatoes in half. Spread the filling over the bottom.

Cook in the oven at 225 ° C/ 437 ° Fahrenheit for 15-20 minutes.

Chicken fillet with spinach and mushrooms

Chicken fillet is a lifesaver at times, it is super simple to make, it does not take long to tilt something that is both good and delicious to eat. There is a lot you can make and vary with chicken fillet. Chicken fillet is perfect everyday food and it’s not as bad as weekend food either!

On this dish here I spent about 20 minutes.

You need:

  • 600 gram/ 21.1 oz chicken fillet
  • 200 grams/ 7.0 oz of spinach
  • 200 grams/ 7.0 oz of mushrooms
  • 150 grams/ 5.2 oz of tomato
  • 2 deciliter/ 0.8 cup cream
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream
  • salt and pepper for taste and pleasure
  • red pepper powder

This is how you do it:

Wipe the chicken fillets with kitchen paper before seasoning passes. The chicken fillet gets a softer, finer crust. Season with salt and pepper, or other spices for added flavor. Mix salt and pepper with, for example, pepper powder and dried thyme. Heat the skillet over medium heat, have it in butter, or a mixture of oil and butter. If you use both oil and butter during baking, you get a good butter flavor without the butter rinsing. Butter withstands heat well.
When the butter stops cooking, add the chicken fillets. Rub the fillets for 2 minutes on each side to get a soft, fine crust. If you are just seasoned with salt and pepper, adding a couple of garlic cloves and a thyme sprig or two to the pan with the chicken may be extra good. Crack the chicken fillets for a few minutes so that the meat juice does not run out as soon as you start cutting it.
Put the spinach, mushrooms and tomatoes in the same pan, fry them a little, then add the cream and sour cream, and simmer for 2/3 minutes before setting aside. Add salt and pepper to taste and delight.
