This is a great quick meal to make. I make my own sun dried tomatoes, which are incredibly easy to do, but you can get them in any big supermarket.
Preparation Time: 5 Minutes
|Spaghetti||Salt & Pepper|
|10-15 sun dried tomato slices||1 clove garlic, chopped|
|1/2 onion, chopped||Bunch of fresh basil, chopped|
Cook the spaghetti according the instructions - usually about 10 minutes - until al dente (there's nothing worse than mushy overcooked pasta).
In a separate small pan, heat some olive oil (from the container that the tomatoes have been in, for best flavour). Gently fry the onions and garlic until soft - don't let the garlic brown otherwise it will taste bitter. Add the sun dried tomato slices, a pinch of sugar and the chopped fresh basil.
Add this mixture to the cooked spaghetti and stir through, making sure the pasta is well coated - add more olive oil if necessary.
