I do not often eat pasta. Occasionally I eat ricotta and spinach tortelloni, and sometimes in a restaurant I will order ravioli. I had some wholewheat spaghetti in my cupboard, so I made a bolognese sauce of minced lamb, onions and tomato, with Italian herbs and garlic to flavour. The sell-by date on the spaghetti was July 2009, which shows how rarely I eat it! However, it cooked nicely al dente and it tasted good.
