These dastardly tartlets inspired by the wicked Green Goblin are great as small snacks at lunch or with a salad and as a main.

Spider-Man is a fictional superhero created by writer-editor Stan Lee and writer-artist Steve Ditko. He appears in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, as well as in a number of movies, television shows, and video game adaptations set in the Marvel Universe. In the stories, Spider-Man is the alias of Peter Parker, an orphan raised by his Aunt May and Uncle Ben in New York City after his parents Richard and Mary Parker were killed in a plane crash. Lee and Ditko had the character deal with the struggles of adolescence and financial issues, and accompanied him with many supporting characters, such as J. Jonah Jameson, Harry Osborn, Max Modell, romantic interests Gwen Stacy and Mary Jane Watson, and foes such as Doctor Octopus, Green Goblin and Venom. His origin story has him acquiring spider-related abilities after a bite from a radioactive spider; these include clinging to surfaces, shooting spider-webs from wrist-mounted devices, and detecting danger with his “spider-sense”.
1 Onion (roughly chopped)
1 Carrot (peeled and roughly chopped)
1 Celery Stick (roughly chopped)
1 Garlic Clove (crushed)
500g Beef Mince
200g Chopped Tomatoes
1 tsp Dried Oregano
1 Beef Stock Cube
Spaghetti (to serve)
Whilst my first “Meals inspired by” meal was Spaghetti Meatballs inspired by the iconic Lady and the Tramp scene. Now, an alternate recipe for Spider-Man, linking the spaghetti to his webs and the tomato sauce to his suit, I’ve made Spaghetti Bolognese.
This recipe is to celebrate Spider-Man in the Cinematic Universe. Whilst there have been tonnes of Spider Man movies, all with different faces, the latest movies with Tom Holland have been my favourite, including movies like Civil War, Infinity War and Endgame.
I also recently watched Into the Spiderverse too and it is incredible. I was really drawn to the art style and everything they did with it to create the movie, it’s not like anything I had seen before in a movie!
Step by Step Instructions
Step 1Add oil to a saucepan and place over a medium-high heat. Add the onions, carrots, celery and garlic, season lightly and stir-fry for 7-8 minutes.
Step 2Add the mince, breaking it up with a spoon, and cook for 3 minutes until browned. Drain off any excess fat.
Step 3Add the chopped tomatoes and oregano, crumble in the stock cube and bring to the boil. Cover, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes.
Step 4Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti according to the packet instructions. Drain then divide the spaghetti and sauce between bowls or plates and serve with salad.
