Spaghetti For The Little Hawthornelets And Their Respective Orbiters.

Rosie can make a mean spaghetti and it's always been a favorite with my Little Hawthornelets. Tonight's spaghetti is special spaghetti: the sauce is on its third and final leg. My sauce first started out as a ragu, or Bolognese sauce, paired with a Bechamel sauce for Lasagna Bolognese. I had about a quart of the Bolognese leftover, so I made a more traditional lasagna with a ricotta filling. I had about a quart of that sauce left over, so I'm feeding everyone spaghetti tonight. I've seen these people eat before and I know there will be no reincarnations for this sauce.
Remember, everything gets used at the Hawthorne Household. This is the pork I had leftover from my stuffed and fried wontons and my potstickers. It's going into my Sauce #3.
Youngest Hawthorne, being the thoughtful child he is, brought me wild onions from the yard.
I sauteed the onions and the pork.

Without flash.
With flash.
Always pour some water into the sauce containers and swirl it around and pour all the goodness into the pan. Cook on a very low simmer. You don't need to cook this long, since it's already gone for hours, twice. But the longer it goes, the better it tastes.
Serve on a nest of spaghetti and top with grated Parmesan cheese. A side of Schwann's baguette.

I was right. All the spaghetti is gone.
