Tomato Pasta, Get Ready For Dinner

My family love pasta. That is why I love cooking them different pasta/spaghetti meals to get everyone happy. But I especially like easy to make and quick recipes that get ready in minutes.

Today I offer you to try the recipe I made the other day. My husband was talking about how much he would like a pasta dish for some time now and I decided it was time to indulge him. But because that day was particularly busy, I thought I would make a one-pot pasta meal.

I am suggesting you try this extra scrumptious, easy to make, super quick tomato pasta dish for everyone in the family to enjoy.

What I like about this recipe – no need to chop anything, no need to prepare anything in advance (you put the dry pasta in the pot), just put everything in the pot and stir so that to help spaghetti boil, not stick to the bottom, and absorb the flavours.

You can always add more water to make the dish more saucy, with more sauce. I like my spaghetti dry, just flavoured.

My only advice would be to keep stirring the dish regularly, so that to skip the boring and tiresome scrubbing later.

Hope you like it too.
