Tomato, Chilli & Garlic Spaghetti

Serve this as a stand alone pasta dish or with Chicken Milanese. When making a dish with so few ingredients, try and buy the best you can afford. I used Mutti tinned tomatoes.

3 tbsp olive oil

4 cloves garlic, very thinly sliced

1/2 tsp chilli flakes

2 tins plum tomatoes (I used Mutti)

1/2 tsp caster sugar

1 tsp dried oregano

1 bay leaf

1 tbsp red wine vinegar

400 g spaghetti

basil leaves to sereve

Warm the olive oil in a pan over a medium/low heat. Add garlic and chilli and cook for a few minutes to flavour the oil. Don’t let the garlic burn. Add plum tomatoes, breaking them up with back of a fork.

Gently heat, add caster sugar, oregano, bay leaf and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper. Allow to simmer for 10 minutes.

Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil, cook the spaghetti to pack instructions, drain. Remove bay leaf from sauce. Tip spaghetti into the tomato chilli sauce, coat all over and cook for 1 minute. Serve sprinkled with some torn basil leaves.
