Pasta with Tomato Sauce

Pasta with tomato sauce is simple to make

Any pasta is suitable for this meal.

Serves 8


2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic (about 3 cloves)

1⁄2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1 cup roughly chopped parsley

4 cups tomato sauce

500g pasta cooked “al dente”

salt and freshly ground black pepper


1. Bring a pot of water to a boil for reheating the pasta. Heat a large skillet or

heavy-bottomed pot large enough to hold all the ingredients over high heat.

Add the oil, garlic, pepper flakes, and parsley; allow these ingredients to

sizzle for 30 seconds. Add the tomato sauce; bring to a simmer.

2. Using a colander or China cap (a funnel-shaped strainer), dip the cooked

pasta into the boiling water for 1 minute to reheat. Transfer the reheated

pasta into the sauce, letting the water that adheres to the pasta drip into the

sauce and thin it a little. Toss to coat; adjust consistency with additional

pasta water, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve sprinkled with

additional chopped parsley.

Serves 8. Arrange 8 medium bowls and serve evenly with pasta spoon. A comfortable meal when there is more than just a few people.
