Among the many food recipes that I cook, pasta, and especially spaghetti are at the top of my preferences. I make both kinds of pasta cooked on the stove and baked in the oven, so the palette of my pasta recipes is pretty large.
One of the simplest spaghetti recipes that I use when I don’t have too much time to spend in the kitchen is pasta with tomato sauce. Usually, I use spaghetti, but other Italian pasta types can be used instead of it such as tagliatelle, penne rigate, and so on.
Most people make pasta with tomato sauce, but usually, they use commercial tomato sauce that they simply place over boiled spaghetti. This is fine when you’re in rush, however, cooking homemade pasta sauce is not so difficult as some might think and is also not so time-consuming as might look.
Therefore, I recommend you to make homemade pasta sauce as many times as you can, especially if you have at disposal fresh tomatoes ripe naturally in the garden. The taste of your tomato pasta sauce will have a much better taste!
Regarding the aromatic herbs, this sauce requires basil and rosemary to comply with its strong Italian essence. The quantity of basil and rosemary depends entirely on you, so you can personalize this spaghetti recipe as you wish. Naturally, if you don’t have fresh plants you can use their dried versions as well.
Finally, topping the dish with grated Parmesan is not mandatory, but when you are still using it you’ll take the food to a more refined level. Personally, I use a smoked Parmesan version and I recommend you try just once the food with this ingredient to become a true gourmand!
