Ok I am no chef but I love to cook. I am always trying to learn new things, even if it ends in a disaster! Yesterday I decided to keep it very simple. Rather than looking for complicated recipes and exotic ingredients, I decided to follow in the Italians foot steps and attempt a very basic dish.
This is a very basic spaghetti recipe with only three ingredients: garlic, tomatoes and basil. And I have to say it tasted amazing. I didn’t over load it with different herbs or spices like I normally do and I could really taste the 3 ingredients. Topped with some extra virgin olive oil and parmesan cheese, it just finished the dish off nicely. A small tip that I have picked up from all these celebrity chefs that I am always watching is to put a bit of the starchy pasta water into the pasta to keep it moist and to stop it drying out. It really does work!
Comfort food at its best. Give it a try!
