Here is a delicious spaghetti/macaroni recipe, A very popular Nigerian food. If you really want to enjoy spaghetti, give this a shot today. I have tried several other recipes and this proves to be the best of them all.
Partly because of the use of carrots and green beans, ingredients that I consider to be highly nutritional. For some reasons, I tend to blend most of my foods these days with fruits and vegetables since I realized their health benefits.

I also like to use lots of onions while making this spaghetti recipe, same thing goes for Nigerian tomato stew and other tomato-made foods.

While I tend to focus more on Nigerian indigenous cuisines, I will also occasionally introduce you to other borrowed or recently invented Nigerian food recipes. The likes of spaghetti/macaroni and indomies (children’s most popular food) only came into the picture just some few years back.

Here is a deliciously made spaghetti meal.
Spaghetti Recipe

Spaghetti is another Nigerian popular meal and here is a delicious recipe, I was never a good fan of pastas until I tasted this spaghetti recipe.

Below is the required ingredient, this could be reduced or doubled depending on the number of people you are looking to serve. You can refrigerate the remainder for a day or two.

Ingredients for 5 serving.
Spaghetti (1 sachet)
1 small tin tomatoes.
2 cups of sliced onions
Fresh tomatoes (see image below)
Fresh pepper (as much as you can take)
Ground Crayfish (3 spoons)
3 cube of knorr or maggi
Salt to taste
1 cup of sliced carrot.
Sliced green beans (1 cup)
1kg Meat/fish or either (chicken, turkey, beef.. etc)
Green pepper (optional).
Ground nut or vegetable oil about 150ml
Corned beef (optional)

How To Prepare My Favorite Spaghetti Recipe

Cut/chop the carrot, green beans and green pepper to desirable sizes.

Below is the image of parboiled spaghetti in a bowl, carrot and green beans in a plate, sliced tomato, onions and pepper. I used a combination of fish and cow-kidney while making this spaghetti meal.

Ingredients for spaghetti

Parboil the meat and fish with all the necessary ingredients I like to use just 2 cubes of maggi, salt, onions and maybe a little of ground nutmeg. Parboiling the meat alone is a good practice, you get the chance to extract the stock from the meat which is an integral part of Nigerian cooking.

I like to parboil the meat/fish while making any Nigerian food with a cup of water and all the necessary ingredients, this practice will enable you to end up with a very tasty meat and also provide the meat stock (meat water) that is used in making most Nigerian foods. You can learn more about this practice later.

Blend the crayfish and also slice the tomatoes/pepper together,

Break spaghetti to smaller lengths (serviceable lengths) and parboil for 5 to 8 minutes, wash and set aside. Pick out the Meat/fish when it is soft for consumption, you can choose to fry or not, fry with about 250ml of groundnut oil (you can reduce the oil after frying).

After frying the fish (you can reduce the oil if it is above 150ml before adding the tomato paste, fry and stir for 3-5 minutes before adding the sliced tomatoes/peppers and onions, fry till the water is dried, this should take about 10-15 minutes. (Remember to stir occasionally to avoid burning)
Spaghetti recipe

Add the meat stock and a cup of water.
Then add all the ingredients I listed above (the ground crayfish, salt to taste then allow to boil.
making spaghetti

Add the spaghetti and cook for about 15-20 minutes till it is almost soft then add the remaining onions, then the carrot and green beans.
Cover for the next 4 to 5 minutes And you just made a delicious spaghetti meal, one of the most popular Nigerian foods

Stir and serve with your favorite drink

I did try something different this morning with macaroni to be precise. I must confess though that I don’t know the difference between macaroni and spaghetti. Perhaps, they only differ in shapes and sizes.

This is slightly different, I would drop the video soon. I used a combination of both slice liver and beef to make this. It is going to serve as an assignment to you. Try it and tell me how it went.
