Fusion Spaghetti Bolognese

That’s right! Spaghetti Bolognese with Asian twist. For Italians, please do not look into this, you are not gonna be happy about it… 🙂 I honestly like this version, it gives a really refreshing taste, thanks to the lime leaves! The dried chilies won’t give the spicy taste, so don’t worry! It would only give a slight taste of peppery. So I hope you enjoy trying a slightly different side of the traditional Asian or Italian food…

    This is just a real treat for being stuck inside with no one to love you. (Or too many people to love.) All it needs is some pull apart cheesy breadsticks and some pot roast with vegetables, nothing else big. Okay double chocolate fudge brownies too!
