Category: Greens

 Ingredients List

  • 350 g Spaghettini; (thin
  • -spaghetti)
  • (350 to 450)
  • 3 tb Olive oil
  • 2 Cloves garlic; peeled and
  • -sliced
  • ; or chopped
  • 750 g Plum tomatoes; skinned,
  • -seeded and
  • ; coarsely chopped
  • 1 sm Hand fresh basil leaves
  • Salt and freshly ground
  • -black pepper
  • Parmesan cheese to serve;
  • -freshly grated


Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Add the spaghettini. As soon
as the pasta is in, heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over a brisk
heat, and add the garlic. Stir for about 30 seconds, then add the tomatoes.
Stir and simmer, then leave to bubble, occasionally crushing down the
tomatoes, for 5 minutes or so, until they form a rough sauce. Season with
salt and pepper, then roughly tear the basil leaves and scatter over the
sauce. Cook for 1 minute or so more. Taste and adjust seasoning.

Drain the pasta and tip into the sauce (if there's enough room in the pan -
if not, tip the sauce over the pasta in the usual way). Turn carefully, to
coat, then serve with freshly grated Parmesan.
