Preparation: Step by Step Flavor


The sauce is the soul of the dish. Let's bring it to life:

  1. In a large pan over medium heat, heat the oil and add the MAGGI Da Horta with Pepper. Stir for 1 minute, until the aromas blend and create a symphony of flavors.
  2. Then add the meat and sauté for 5 minutes, until golden and all the flavor is released.
  3. Add the pepper and sauté for another 1 minute, just to coat all the ingredients.
  4. Remove this mixture from the pan and set aside.

In the same pan, continue the magic:

  1. Over medium heat, add the tomatoes, basil, oregano and sugar, mixing everything. Let this feast of flavors take shape!
  2. Carefully pour in the water and increase the heat. Let it cook for about 10 minutes, until it becomes a thicker and more irresistible sauce.
  3. Add the ground meat to the sauce and set this wonder aside.


While the sauce gains even more flavor, let's take care of the pasta:

  1. In a large pan, add the water and salt. Let this mixture of water and salt come to the surface – it's time for the spaghetti to bathe in flavor.
  2. Once the water is full, add the spaghetti and cook according to the package instructions. That's when it transforms into something magnificent!
  3. Once it's at the right point, drain the spaghetti and add it to the hot sauce. This union is a true marriage of flavors!
  4. Serve immediately and get ready for the compliments. After all, this explosion of flavor deserves to be shared.
