Are you already thinking of making some spaghetti and sauce? Instead of going through scores of recipes online, we’ve made it easy for you by compiling some of the best spaghetti and mince recipes you should try.

Early tips

  • Minced meat should be stored in a refrigerator at 5 degrees or less unless it has been cooked and eaten.
  • When you buy meat from the butcher or supermarket, it is best that you transport it home in a cooler bag or a container, as this will help maintain its freshness.
  • As soon as you get home, store the mince meat in the freezer if you do not intend to use it the same day. Any bacteria that might be present in the meat doubles every 30 minutes at normal room temperature.
  • Wrap the mince to prevent its juices from flowing onto other food. The fluid from the mince contains poisonous bacteria that can contaminate other food.
