Simple Spaghetti & Tomato sauce

Simple Spaghetti & Tomato sauce from the Darling Sara

This is such a wonderfully simple, quick and amazingly tasty dinner, Simple Spaghetti & Tomato sauce!  I think it’s the simplicity of this dish that makes it so special. It’s one of those quick suppers that you can make when you get home without even really thinking about it.

Thanks Sara for your AMAZINGLY simple & fabulous Spaghetti

Spaghetti, tomatoes – so beautiful and sweet as the sauce is made from cherry tomatoes and a kick of chilli! Topped with fresh basil leaves and Parmesan if you like – it makes the perfect midweek supper!

It’s that simple…. please trust me it’s so very good. I eat it often and it never fails to deliver on flavour! Somehow it seems to work best with spaghetti but you can substitute for penne, rigatoni – whatever you like

Another one of  Italian Sara’s recipes is Pennete with peas, pancetta and mascapone equally as delicious, she’s our Italian chick, how lucky are we to have these easy authentic recipes directly from Sara! Thank you

Spaghetti is a staple food of traditional Italian cuisine – yum yum

Have a go at this uber tasty  Spaghetti and be sure to  let me know what you think!

Thanks Clare
