This is such a wonderfully simple, quick and amazingly tasty dinner, Simple Spaghetti & Tomato sauce!  So flipping easy

Thanks Sara for your AMAZINGLY simple & fabulous Spaghetti

AMAZINGLY simple & fabulous Spaghetti

 

Spagetti, tomatoes 

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
