Dry Spaghetti



This is such a simple way to Jazz up spaghetti, It goes especially well with fish 

and a simple side salad for supper. 

 Add any fresh herbs, chutney or chilies to the basic recipe for variation.


I have saved this recipe for quite some time now.

The original recipe is meant for camping trips and only consist of tomato puree.

However I adore fresh tomatoes, and onions is always a winner.

We had this the other day with fish cakes (Shop bought!)  and a few slices of  Avocado  for lunch.

The men really enjoyed this.

This recipe is only for 120 g uncooked spaghetti which will serve 3 people

and equals to 2 starch portions per person.


1/2 onion

2 medium tomatoes

60 g tomato puree

1/2 tsp brown / white sugar

salt and pepper to taste

Cook Spaghetti (Al Dente’) , strain and  keep aside.

In a food processor chop up 1/2 onion and fry in a little olive oil, remove from heat.

Chop up 2 medium tomatoes in the food processor and add with the onions.

Add the tomato puree, sugar, salt and pepper.

Let the sauce simmer for a +-  a minute, allowing it to reduce a little while  stirring continuously.

Add cooked Spaghetti to the sauce and toss around to cover all of the Spaghetti.

  1. lol! ironic isn’t it? Enjoy the heat we are experiencing the last symptoms of winter in SA, I can’t wait for the summer. I normally don’t like summer at all! but this year I’m counting the days…can’t wait to get back into the veggie garden! at this stage we still have frost every other day, no use planting anything.
