I found this recipe the other day in Mum’s collection and thought the name was, frankly, weird – Indonesian Spaghetti. When you read the actual recipe though, I think it might taste OK, haven’t worked up the courage yet to try it though………………..
I always thought this soup was made with pasta, but obviously I was completely wrong. Mum seems to have cut this from her bowls magazine back in the 80s, the reverse side has bowling results and an In Remembrance list of members who’d passed away. Maybe like Mum they live on through their recipes too.
You can tell that this is a ’70s recipe by the picture. It doesn’t look particularly appetizing I’ll admit, but when you realize that it’s just a bolognese sauce with eggs on top it makes more sense. I’d definitely be sprinkling the grated cheese and bacon on top though as that might make it look a bit better.
Australia Day is only a couple of weeks away and how better to celebrate it than with lamb, pavlova and lamingtons. The lamingtons take a bit of patience to make yourself, but are much better than the bought variety. The conversion for this old recipe of Mum’s is: 8oz = 250ml, 4oz = 125g and the 9in square cake tin = 23cm.
