Ingredients

Easy Pasta
 with fresh garden tomato sauce

  • 600 gram / 21.16 oz fresh tomatoes, chopped into dice
  • 300 gram / 10.58 oz spaghetti
  • 30 ml / 1 oz olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • ½ tsp. crushed coriander seeds
  • ½ tsp. black pepper freshly ground
  • ½ tsp. dried red chili flakes (Cayenne)
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp. brown sugar
  • A shot of brown balsamic vinegar
  • 30 ml / 1 oz olive oil
  • 3 tbs. of grated Parmesan or extra matured cheddar
  • 1tbs. butter
  • A little fresh oregano
  • 7 fresh basil leaves, chopped

 Directions

  • Heat a little olive oil in the pan, add the chopped garlic to the pan and fry it for a minute or two. Don’t let it get brown.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes, once they start to boil, add all the spices, sugar and vinegar except the oregano and the basil.
  • Lower the heat and let the tomato sauce simmer without lid for about 40 to 50 minutes. This will reduce the liquid and thicken the sauce.
  • Don’t use to much salt initially, rather add some once the sauce is ready to be served.
  • While the sauce has been simmering for about 30 minutes prepare the spaghetti in a large pot with about 4 liters of water.
  • Cook the spaghetti following the instructions on the packet, until they are nearly done and only need another 1 to 2 minutes of cooking time.
  • Remove the spaghetti from the stove drain the water, keeping some of it in case you want to change the consistency of your sauce a little later.
  • Quickly taste the sauce and adjust to your taste if you want to.
  • Than add the pasta to the simmering sauce and mix it well. Let it boil for another minute, which will allow the pasta to absorb some of the sauce.
  • Switch of the heat, add the cheese, butter, oregano and basil to the pasta, mix all well and place on a large dish on the table.
  • Eat it hot.
