  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 14 oz can chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried or 1 teaspoon chopped fresh basil
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 lb spaghetti


  • Fry the onion and garlic in the oil for 5 minutes until soft.
  • Add the tomatoes, basil, salt and pepper. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer gently for 15 minutes or until thickened.
  • While the sauce is simmering, cook the spaghetti in a large pan of boiling salted water for 10 -12 minutes until just tender. Drain, place in a serving bowl and keep hot.
  • Blend the sauce in a liquidiser. Reheat in a saucepan for a few minutes, pour over the spaghetti and serve immediately.
  • When fresh tomatoes are cheap and plentiful, use 450 g (1 lb) peeled and chopped fresh instead of canned tomatoes and 1 tablespoon tomato puree.
