This is a classic Italian recipe that get most twisted around. 'Bolognese sauce' is a meat-based sauce, used for pasta, spaghetti, lasagne or ragu, originating from Bologna, Italy. The all-time favourite recipe, loved by all. This is not true bolognese sauce, you may say a variation which widely used in northern part of Italy. It is actually rich meat with spicy tomato sauce. If any leftover will be there, that will taste even better on next day.
4 OZ / 100 gm Spaghetti
1/2 lb Boneless Skinless Chicken Thigh
2 tbsps Tomato Puree
1 tbsp Ginger paste
4 cloves of Garlic paste
1/2 medium Red Onion paste
1/2 medium Red Onion (chopped)
2 tbsps grated/shredded Parmesan Cheese
1 tbsp Dried Italian Herb Mix
1/4 tsp Black Pepper powder
1/3 tsp Paprika
2 tbsps finely chopped Parsley Leaves
2 tbsps + 2 tsps Olive Oil
1 tsp Butter
1 tsp Honey
salt to taste

Wash and cut chicken thigh in thin slices.

Boil chicken with 1/2 cup water for 10 minutes. Sieve water. Set aside.

Break each spaghetti in three pieces.

In a sauce pan, bring 1 cup water and 1/2 cup chicken stock to a boil. Add 2 tsps olive oil and little salt in it, then spagetti. Keep it boiling for 10 minutes till it gets tender. Drain and rinse the spaghetti under cold water. Put it in colander. Now heat butter in the same saucepan. Toss the spaghetti in it. Continuously keep turning for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside. Arrange spaghetti on a plate according to its circumference and make a round whole/gap  in the centre.
Heat remaining olive oil in a frying pan. Add chopped onions in it. When onions get translucent, add onion paste, ginger paste and garlic paste. Fry for 3-4 minutes.

Add tomato puree in it. Saute for another 2 minutes and add cooked chicken in it. Add paprika, black pepper powder, 3/4 tbsp Italian herb mix, chopped parsley leaves, honey and salt. Fold well. Fry for 3 minutes.
Now add 1/3 cup warm water in it. Keep on low heat for another 2-3 minutes. Add parmesan cheese. Fold nicely for another 2 minutes. Cheese mix up with bolognese sauce nicely. Remove from heat. Pour in the middle of spaghetti plate. Sprinkle remaining Italian herb mix with little salt on the spagetti layer.
Serve immediately.

TIPS: For a nice mix up, adding cheese with bolognese sauce is better. But you may
          sprinkle it at the top of bolognese also.
          May cook pasta, lasagne or ragu in the same way.
