Spaghetti Bolognese (Xs’ Own Version)

Recipe for 4

500gr spaghetti (preferably spaghettini)
300gr pork minced meat
1 large onion thinly chopped
1 can of cubed tomatoes
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons olive oil
A small bunch of parsley thinly chopped
1/2 cup water
Parmesan, grated

In a large skillet heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Add the minced meat and with a fork start stirring and pressing the meat until granular. Add the chopped onion and continue stirring until onion is glossy and add the tomato and water. Stir and add the salt, pepper and cinnamon. Cover and simmer over medium heat for 20 minutes until the sauce thickens, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, prepare the spaghetti according to package directions for al dente. Drain and place under cold water to stop cooking. Add and stir two tablespoons of olive oil and set on the side.
As soon the sauce thickens add the chopped parsley and remove from heat. Stir and add the cooked pasta. Serve hot, topped with grated cheese. Enjoy!
