Week 35- Spaghetti Marinara
serves 4 to 6
Hi and welcome to our Vegetarian Kitchen. Once again, we celebrate pasta and this dish is very quick to prepare and economical. Lovely for supper to share with friends or a weekend lunch. The cost is less than £3 for 6 people. Cheap as chips!
400g Can Chopped Tomatoes
2 or 3 tablespoons olive oil or vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic minced or chopped
2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley or half teaspoon dried
half teaspoon dried oregano
grated Parmesan cheese to sprinkle on top
salt & pepper to taste
First make the sauce. Heat oil in a saucepan. Add garlic and saute briefly. Add chopped tomatoes and herbs, bring to the boil and simmer gently for 10 minutes. Season.
Bring to the boil a large saucepan of water. Add spaghetti and cook al dente. Dried pasta will take about 12 minutes. Drain immediately in a colander and return to saucepan.
To serve, put spaghetti in one large serving dish. Put sauce on top and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
ENJOY. Lovely with a glass of red wine.
