1- 2 tbsp Fresh cream


Pressure cook all the ingredients for the tomato sauce, strain the excess liquid and blend to a sauce consistency.

Put your spaghetti to boil

Add the garlic and chilli flakes to hot oil. Add the tomato sauce and herbs. Mix it all and add some grated cheese and fresh cream. Sprinkle salt for taste. Add in your cooked spaghetti and mix in with the sauce. Grate some extra cheese and add extra chilli flakes and herbs if necessary. Squeeze a little bit of lemon.


Pair with:  a light tomato sauce like this one is best suited with a crisp Italian white such as Pinot Grigio or Vermentino 

To stick to Italian cuisine, the perfect side dish would be a fresh and quick bruschetta with some bright tomatoes and basil.
