Simple Pasta Sauce

Simple Pasta Sauce


  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 or 1/2 an onion, to preference
  • 1 tbsp basil
  • 1 tsp tomato puree (or a squirt of ketchup)
  • Can of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tsp of sugar
  • Pepper to taste
  • Pasta/spaghetti


  1. Chop onion and fry on medium/high heat. Add a teaspoon of sugar over the onions while frying. When the onions start to golden, add the chopped/crushed garlic. Stir for a minute, making sure the garlic does not burn.
  2. Add the can of chopped tomatoes. Stir.
  3. Add basil, mixed herbs and tomato puree/ketchup. Taste, stir and cook for about 5 minutes. Bring to a bubble and turn heat down to medium-low to simmer.
  4. Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a separate pot. Remember to stir sauce regularly while making the pasta so it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot.
  5. Serve, add lots of cheese and pepper to taste!
