When I properly get my appetite back, the first thing I’m going to make is spaghetti.
Start with ground beef in a large pot, then throw in lots of onion and garlic, and cook it together. Keep all the fat. Add diced tomatoes and tomato paste. Oregano, basil, a touch of curry, brown sugar, and any other spices that sound good at the time. Bring to a simmer.
Add mushrooms. After they are fully cooked, throw in a sinful amount of mozzarella cheese. Stir in when completely melted.
Go easy on the noodles and don’t make too much. The sauce is meant to be super thick.
So hearty. So delicious. So forbidden by every fad diet. I love it.
But alas, most foods still make me gag, so all I can do is dream.
