After a long time we had dinner with my favourite Italian food, pasta. Since I am very fond of Italian food, I couldn’t resist myself from buying a handy book on pasta as soon as I saw it in the book store. Today’s recipe belongs to this book. It requires few ingredients and is easy to make. Hope you will like it and try at your own kitchen.
Ingredients to serve 2 :
- Extra-virgin olive oil – 2½ tbspoon
- Finely chopped onion – 1
- Canned chopped tomatoes – 400 gm.
- Garlic cloves, cut into quarters – 2
- Salt and crushed black pepper
- Dried spaghetti – 225 gm.
- Handful fresh basil leaves, shredded
- Parmesan cheese to serve
Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and fry gently for 5 minutes until soft. Add the tomatoes and garlic. Bring to the boil, then simmer over medium – low heat for 25 – 30 minutes until the oil separates from the tomato. Season with salt and pepper.
Cook the pasta in plenty of boiling salted water until tender but still firm to the bite. Drain and transfer to a serving dish.
Pour the sauce over the pasta. Add the basil and toss well to mix. Serve with Parmesan cheese.
