I tried a nice meat sauce spaghetti in Interlaken, Switzerland. Not knowing the recipe, I created my own version. This is a recipe for two.

Streaky Bacon, 50g

Mince Beef, 150g

Italian Canned Tomato, 1 can

Chopped Onion, 1/2 bulb

Chopped Garlic

Red Wine, 1/4 cup

Freshly Chopped Rosemary

Sea Salt

Freshly Crushed Black Pepper

Olive Oil

Heat up a pan with some olive oil and fry bacon till crispy then put aside for later use.

In the same pan, add in more olive oil and saute onion and garlic till golden brown.

Add in mince beef, salt, pepper and rosemary. Saute for 30 seconds.

Add in red wine follow by crushed tomatoes. Add in a little pasta water and simmer sauce for 8 minutes.

Toss spaghetti in the sauce with bacon and serve immediately with parmigiano cheese.


  1. Wow, I love this recipe with bacon! I have never thought of bacon in the sauce. This looks absolutely delicious!

    1. Thank you Judy. I am glad you like it. There is another challenging meat sauce recipe that I would love to try soon. It needs pouching sirloin or rib-eye steak in red wine till the meat can be teared off then cook in can tomatoes. Wish me luck 🙂
