Taughetti la Bolognese

Ingredients for 4 servings>
  • 400 - 500 g ground beef
  • 1 diced onion, 1 finely chopped garlic clove
  • 1 leek
  • 1 package button mushrooms
  • 800 g mung bean sprouts
  • a bit of butter/oil
  • 1 jar strained tomatoes

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Heat butter/oil and sauté garlic and onion. Add mushrooms and leeks and sauté until soft. In the meantime, brown the ground beef. Add the vegetables to the beef and mix well. Add the strained tomatoes and season to taste with salt and pepper. Add mung bean sprouts to boiling water, wait until water starts boiling again, then remove from heat and drain. Arrange mung bean sprouts on plates and serve with sauce. If desired, sprinkle with cheese (e.g. parmesan). A light, but satisfying version of the classic pasta Bolognese is ready to be enjoyed.
