Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

This is a very quick and easy to prepare but filling and tasty to eat meal, ideal for when you have been out all day, or working all day in the garden, and want something quick that is not takeaway.


2-3 teaspoons of oil
1 onion (diced)
3 cloves of garlic (miced)
1 jar of tomato sauce
1 Jar of diced tomatoes
1 Jar of water
½ stock cube (optional)
A couple of big handfuls of pasta, we like large spirals
120gms Sour cream
Cheese for topping


Heat up a frying pan, add the oil, onion and garlic, fry until transparent
Add in the tomato sauce and diced tomato, wash out the sauce jar with the equivalent of 1 jar of water, and bring to the boil.
Toss in the stock cube if required
When boiling, add in the pasta and stir to distribute,
Simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, until pasta reaches desired texture, monitor during this time to make sure the mix doesn’t get too dry, and more water if required.
Remove from the heat, add in the sour cream, top with grated cheese and serve.

Alternatively, if one person doesn't want the sour cream, stir in the sour cream after serving.

This recipe is quick, easy, tasty and filling. If you grow your onion and garlic and grow and/or process your own tomatoes as we do, it can be mostly home produced as well!
