This week, I made every dinner from Guy Fieri Food by Guy Fieri. This recipe, Weird Spaghetti, was meant to be a take on Cincinnati Chili. It was meant to be 2 lb of ground beef, made into a fine sauce with the seasonings of Cincinnati Chili. I omitted the meat, and made the sauce and then I pureed it and put it on pasta (Perciatelli to be exact). It was quite good. I would make this again. We all loved it.
Weird Spaghetti (adapted)
1 onion, thinly sliced
2.5 tsp ground cinnamon
2.5 tsp ground cloves
2.5 tsp ground cumin
2.5 tsp ground ginger
2.5 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
½ tsp kosher salt
3/4 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1.5 cups marinara sauce
1 quart low sodium beef broth (or vegetable)
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 lb bucatini or perciatelli pasta
¼ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
In a large skillet over MED heat, add onion and cook until browned.
Stir in the seasonings and cook for 2-3 minutes, then stir in the marinara sauce. Add the broth, vinegar and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a gentle simmer and cook over LOW heat for 1 hour to marry the flavors.
To serve, put the cooked pasta in a serving bowl and add the sauce. Garnish with parmesan. Serve.
The original recipe calls for 2 lb ground beef cooked up. I omitted it. This is supposed to be like Cincinnati Chili.
Yield: 8 servings
