Spaghetti in Tomato Basil Sauté

Thinking about dinner drives me nuts. Somehow I have become lazy with this climate and dont feel like making anything. So when I went inside my kitchen to think about dinner, I found my spaghetti lying there in the corner. Of all dishes I feel pasta is very simple. So I decided to make something with spaghetti. What about veggies??? Oh no!!! I cant cut vegetables for pasta, I thought.. I was lazy but I had to come up with something for dinner. Thats when this idea struck me and I tried this dish which is very simple and very easy. It came out well and it passed the test and got an "A grade" from my husband. :-)


Spaghetti Pasta - 10 Oz
Tomato - 3 small
Basil - 2 tbsp finely chopped
Salt - to taste
Olive Oil - 1 tbsps
Garlic - 1/2 tbps chopped/grated


In a large pot, bring water ( Salt and Olive Oil added ) to boil and add spaghetti. Let it cook untill tender. Drain water and leave it aside.

In another pan, heat a tbsp oil and toss garlic and fry for few seconds.

I just pureed tomatoes with my food masher and added it to the pan. You can just add cut tomatoes. I was too lazy to cut into small cubes.

Add more salt if required and let it cook untill the tomatoes gets tender and you will get thick sauce.

Now add basil and stir well.

Add spaghetti and mix until everything blends well.

Thats it !!! Simple right??? The flavor of garlic with olive oil and tomato basil give a great taste to the dish..

Enjoy your Meal!!! Sending this to Ruth's Presto Pasta Night hosted by Claudia for this week
