Week 5- Spaghetti With Our Own Tomato Sauce

Hi and welcome to our vegetarian kitchen. This week we have had glorious weather in most parts so get out to the park and enjoy the Spring flowers, make the most of it, or walk to the shops and breathe in fresh air. Not the week to be slaving in the kitchen so here is our recipe for quick Tomato Sauce, which can be served with any Pasta. It is very similar to Italian Marinara Sauce except any good Italian cook would stir it for days.

We suggest you use Spaghetti for this dish but any pasta would be as good.


serves 4


3 tablespoons Oil (olive oil if possible)

2 cloves Garlic, minced

1 small Onion finely chopped

1 Tin 400g Chopped Tomatoes

1 teaspoon Oregano

black pepper and salt to taste


Heat oil in a medium saucepan, fry onion until soft then add garlic; saute for a minute; add tin tomatoes, oregano and bring to the boil then simmer very gently for about 15 minutes, stirring often to prevent the sauce sticking. Do not boil.


serves 4


Spaghetti - Allow 60g - 80g serving per person. 300g for 4.

Parmesan Cheese or Grated Cheese of your choice


Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil. Add Spaghetti and cook al dente or for longer if you prefer it soft. Drain. To serve - Place Spaghetti on the plates, pour over sauce, sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese. A leafy salad makes a great accompaniment. ENJOY!
