One Pot Spaghetti

Today has been a frustrating one - my work never quite went to plan, my back was in agony and my washing machine finally collapsed under all the mud that was brought back from O's camping weekend.

I needed cheering up and I knew just the dish that would do it.

I have had this recipe on my pinterest for ages.  I am not really much of a pasta fan if I am honest.  But today - it was all I wanted.

I took inspiration (in fact I followed the recipe almost to the letter) from Kitchen Nostalgia  and I must say it was delicious.  

The ingredients were not fancy - just olive oil, onions, garlic, grated carrot, canned and puree tomatoes, vegetable stock , spaghetti and herbs.

You sweat the onions in the oil until they go clear

Then add the garlic, carrot, tomatoes, herbs and veg stock and let it cook for 15 minutes

The add the spaghetti and cook until tender.

  • 800 g canned chopped tomatoes with liquid

  • 2 tsp sugar
  • about 5 cups vegetable stock
  • parsley, basil, oregano, allspice (to taste)
  1. In a large frying pan heat the oil and saute onion until clear. 
  2. Add carrots and garlic and saute for 1 more minute.
