Spaghetti and Goat Sauce

Spaghetti and what? Yup, you read it right Spaghetti and Goat Sauce…

Am I breaking any rule by making Spaghetti and goat sauce instead of spaghetti and meat balls? If I am, you have all the right to hand cuff me. If not, join me and make this easy yet super delicious, meaty, saucy spaghetti with goat meat. I guess you guys are with me, I hear the applause 😉 By the way, who dare to resist this if served right in front of you, just screw the rule or whatever and gobble up the yummy spaghetti and goat sauce.

In India, goat is popular than lamb, but in the US it’s just the opposite. I for some reason prefer goat to lamb, may be because I grew up eating goat. Also, I am not a die hard fan of goat. I cook goat once in a while only, as I can’t stand the strong flavor from the goat meat. Last weekend, goat was my target and I wanted to make something different with it; other than the spicy goat curry that I used to make. Seeing spaghetti in my pantry, the idea of making spaghetti and goat sauce hit me vigorously.

Went with my idea and the next thing I witnessed was my husband sneaking into the kitchen and digging into the cooking pan. How greedy of him! Can’t blame him as this’s highly irresistible.

Like a tsunami I stopped him from emptying it as I was more concerned about plating the dish and taking few pictures of that. He hates when I do this. So, I had to hurry up and quickly clicked few pictures. I had to serve the entire pot to satisfy my hubby’s greed, which I did with all smiles 🙂

Spaghetti Center piece: Put a handful of spaghetti on a glass and place this on the dinner table, don’t have to rush for any flowers, this works just perfect.
