Everyone needs a great everyday Spaghetti and Cannabis Bolognese recipe, and this is ours.

The Bolognese Sauce is rich, and thick and has a beautiful depth of flavour. It’s perfect for a quick midweek meal especially when you want a hit of weed, but even better if you can simmer it for a couple of hours!

How Do I Infuse Spaghetti With Weed?

Easy! With cannabis oil.

Making cannabis oil, especially if you haven’t done it before, requires a little time and patience but once you’ve got the hang of it, you’ll have thousands of recipes to choose from where an infusion is the perfect choice.

What Other Ingredients Do I Need?

There are 4 little things in this recipe that might be a bit different to the Bolognese recipes you’ve seen around, and of course we’re adding in weed – so that’s pretty unique too!

1. Worcestershire sauce: it just adds that little extra something-something.

2. Beef bouillon cubes: for extra depth of flavour in the sauce. Yum yum!

3. Sugar, if needed: just a little bit goes a long way to transform the sauce if you happen not to be using high-quality, sweet Italian canned tomatoes.

4. Cannabis oil: when you saute your garlic and onion, this is cannabis oil’s time to shine!

How to Make Bolognese Sauce

The making part is straightforward and quite quick too:

  • Saute garlic and onion in cannabis oil– for about 3 minutes;
  • Brown the beef – about 2 minutes;
  • Add everything else, give it a good stir then simmer for 20 minutes minimum.
