One thing that I have never tried before is cooking pasta IN the sauce. Time to try it!
Actually I have become obsessed with this and made it several times a week over the last month. You can make this as simple or complicated as you want (I’ve even done it just with tinned tomatoes and water for the sauce!) What I love about it, is how the sauce thickens beautifully 🙂
Anyway, here is a veggie (vegan) version for 2 people:
1 tin tomatoes
1 stock cube
half pint boiling water
200g pasta (mine was gluten free)
Fry the vegetables in a little oil for 2-3 minutes.
Add the tomatoes and water. Bring to the boil
Add the pasta and give a good stir. Bring back to the boil, simmer and cover for 7-10 minutes.
When the water is mostly absorbed and the pasta is starting to stick, turn off the heat and leave ion the covered pan for 5 minutes to finish absorption.
