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!


500g Spaghetti

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.
