  1. Brown onions, garlic and celery. For seasoning if you want a little taste of mexican add comino seeds. For Italian add a little basil. You can also add carrots or frozen mixed veggies.

  2. A salad.

  3. Boil and drain your pasta. Add the diced tomatoes & seasonings of choice (oregano, basil), minced garlic and onion, and heat thru. Top with parmesan or mozzarella cheese and fresh basil.

    Bruschetta. Halve and toast a baguette brushed or drizzled with olive oil. Top with drained diced tomatoes, and parmesan or mozzarella. Place under broiler until cheese is melted.

    Pizza. Drain the tomatoes first. Add any toppings of choice – basil, mozzarella, etc.

  4. This pasta sauce takes minutes to cook. What’s great about this recipe for beginner cooks is that once you’ve done it a few times you can add other simple ingredients to your basic tomato sauce to completely transform it. Check out the end of the recipe, where I’ve given you some ideas to get started.


    • 2 cloves of garlic
    • 1 fresh red chile
    • A small bunch of fresh basil
    • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
    • 1 pound dried spaghetti
    • Olive oil
    • 1 x 14-ounce can of diced tomatoes
    • 4 ounces Parmesan cheese

    To prepare your pasta
    Peel and finely slice the garlic. Finely slice your chile (halve and seed it first if you don’t want the sauce too hot). Pick the basil leaves off the stalks and put to one side. Finely chop the stalks.

    To cook your pasta
    Bring a large pan of salted water to a boil, add the spaghetti and cook according to the package instructions. Meanwhile, put a large saucepan on a medium heat and add 2 good lugs of olive oil. Add the garlic, chile, and basil stalks and give them a stir. When the garlic begins to brown slightly, add most of the basil leaves and the canned tomatoes. Turn the heat up high and stir for a minute. Season with salt and pepper. Drain the spaghetti in a colander then transfer it to the pan of sauce and stir well. Taste and add more salt and pepper if you think it needs it. Divide the pasta between your bowls, or put it on the table in a large serving dish and let everyone help themselves. Roughly tear over the remaining basil leaves and grate over some Parmesan.

    These can be added to your tomato sauce when it’s finished. Just stir in and warm through:
    • Add a handful of baby spinach leaves to the sauce at the same time you add the pasta—when the leaves have wilted remove from the heat and serve with some crumbled goat’s cheese on top.
    • A few handfuls of cooked shrimp and a handful of chopped arugula with the juice of ½ a lemon.
    • A can of tuna drained and flaked into the sauce with ½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon, some black olives and the juice of ½ a lemon.
    • A handful of fresh or frozen peas and fava beans
