Yep – it was yummy.

Opposite to well-liked perception, you don’t want varied pots and pans to make first rate spaghetti. You may make one pot spaghetti. In truth, some would argue it tastes even higher than spaghetti made in two or three pots.

That is my recipe for Dutch oven spaghetti made exterior with charcoal briquettes or wooden charcoal. The rationale you can also make this with only a Dutch oven over a fireplace (or one pot in your range) is since you prepare dinner the sauce first after which prepare dinner the spaghetti in the sauce. What’s nice about this technique is the spaghetti will get infused with the flavour of the sauce because it cooks.

Cooking Spaghetti with a Dutch Oven and Charcoal Briquettes

This dish was one of many first recipes I made in my outside cooking fireplace pit.

It is a nice household recipe for tenting, as a result of:

  • There is just one dish so it’s fast cleanup.
  • You save water since you boil the spaghetti within the sauce.
  • The meals breaks up the tenting monotony of hamburgers and hotdogs.
  • Everybody loves spaghetti!

I used charcoal briquettes to prepare dinner this recipe, beginning them in a charcoal chimney to hurry the method alongside. I do know charcoal briquettes are frowned upon for outside cooking due to the components, however they’re actually not an issue when you’re simply utilizing them to warmth a Dutch oven. They’re an inexpensive, quick, and constant option to prepare dinner, and the meals is absolutely sealed away from the briquettes if you’re utilizing a Dutch oven.
