Serves: 2 

  • olive oil for frying
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 170g spaghetti
  • 200g chopped tomatoes (fresh or canned)
  • 1 to 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • sugar to taste

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Heat some oil in a pan. Add the onion and cook till a light golden colour.
  2. Meanwhile boil water and cook the spaghetti as written on the package.
  3. Now, I personally used chopped canned tomatoes. I put them in a blender in order to make the sauce.
  4. When the onions were slightly golden, I add the pureed tomatoes, garlic, pepper, salt and a teaspoon of sugar. Mix well and leave to simmer over medium heat for approximately 7 minutes.
  5. When the pasta is done, toss with a tablespoon of olive oil and add to the sauce. Taste and season if needed, then serve!


You can also add some fresh basil to the tomato sauce, it will bring you back to that holiday you had in Italy! Mmmm, yummy!
