The simplest of pasta dishes, with a mildly creamy tomato sauce dotted with chilli flakes for a bit of a kick.
Athletes, this is great the night before a long run.
Heat the olive oil in a pan (don’t let it smoke – medium heat) and fry the onion, chilli and garlic gently til softened.
Meantime start cooking the spaghetti in boiling salted water.
Add the tomatoes to the onion, garlic and chilli and crush with a potato masher.
Add the sugar salt, pepper, herbs and tomato puree, and stir. Simmer for 10 mins.
Add the cream to the tomato sauce and stir through. Simmer for a few more minutes.
Mix the drained cooked spaghetti into the sauce and serve in spaghetti bowls liberally sprinkled with fresh rated parmesan.
Tomatoes are rich in lycopene which is a pokey antioxidant. Antioxidants are like bouncers at a night club, they go around finding stray electrons that are busy causing trouble in your body, and find them a love partner so they can both stay in and cuddle on the sofa.
Tomatoes are also a brilliant source of vitamin C, which supports skin and connective tissue health as well as immunity and iron absorption. The biotin in tomatoes is good for controlling blood sugar.
