I'm all kinds of excited about this recipe-the thing is just doing me gish gish gish. The first time  made spaghetti like this nothing remain inside the pot. As proof that it was good, my yard people demanded it over and over again. We've had it 3 times this week and it's not even Sunday yet! I have a different Spaghetti Jollof recipe HERE that I love so much-it's interesting how you can cook something in so many ways and still have mouth-watering results! As always I have the video HERE, or scroll down below to see the full list of ingredients and all other senenren. 

1 500g Pack Spaghetti 
1 Medium Tin Tomato
0.45kg Minced Beef
2 Medium sized Onions Chopped
I Medium Sized Green Bell Pepper Chopped
6 Big Tomatoes Sliced
3 Habanero Pepper Chopped
1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Paprika
1 tsp Thyme
1 tsp Ginger
3 Bay Leaf
5 Cups Water

  • In a pot, boil water, add some salt and a drizzle of oil then add the spaghetti. Cover and allow to cook till it is soft, then drain and set aside. 
  • Heat up a pot, add some vegetable oil, allow to heat up then add Onions and Ginger and some chopped green bell pepper. Sauté.  
  • In a bowl, mix 1/4 cup water and tomato paste, then pour into the pot. Add all the salt and seasoning cube. Stir frequently to prevent it from burning and continue till the oil separates-taste it, it should not taste sour anymore. 
  • In a another pan, heat up about 2 tbs of oil, add some onions and green bell pepper, then add the minced beef and fry till the beef goes from pink to brown. 
  • Add the fried minced beef into the tomato sauce and stir together. Ad 1/2 water, then bay leaf, garlic, paprika, and thyme. 
  • The sauce should begin to look creamy. Now add the spaghetti that was set aside earlier and combine well. Add more water, enough to make it moist.
  • In a separate pan, saute onions and fresh sliced tomatoes. Add a pinch of salt. Allow to fry till it is cooked.
  • Now add the tomatoes to the pot of spaghetti, combine again, cover and allow to cook for 20 more minutes. The goal is to get the spaghetti to be creamy and the sauce thick. The more you mix and cook the thicker and yummier it gets! This is the beauty of this dish. 
  • After 2 minutes you can now eat it-I know you have been salivating :)
