Tomato Spaghetti

  • 500 grams thin egg spaghetti or regular spaghetti
  • 1 teaspoon oil olive
  • 4 cloves garlic See Note 1
  • 400 ml tomato soup
  • 400 grams crushed tomatoes plain, no herbs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • cup parsely
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbs italian herbs See Note 2


Tomato Spaghetti Method

  • Add water to a medium sized sauce pan with lid on and bring to the boil (See Note 3)
  • Add dried spaghetti and olive oil, cook for 8 minutes, using a fork to separate pasta strands
  • Drain and set aside 
  • Cut garlic into small pieces 
  • Add a drop or 2 of olive oil to pan to keep it from burning. Add garlic and fry off till fragrant (2 mins) 
  • Add tomato soup, crushed tomatoes, salt, pepper and Italian herbs to garlic and stir to combine 
  • Add spaghetti back into saucepan and stir till sauce is consistently mixed in
  • Top with fresh parsley and parmesan cheese 


  • NOTE 1: If you or your family do not enjoy the taste of garlic, then you can simply leave it out! 
  • NOTE 2: If you don't have Italian Herbs, Oregano will work instead (no need to rush out just for one ingredient)
  • NOTE 3: Having the lid on the saucepan when heating the water will mean it heats much faster. I sometimes also boil the kettle and use that water when I am in a hurry. 
  • NOTE 4: An Australian tablespoon (20ml) is slightly larger than an American tablespoon (15ml), this is a good thing to keep in mind for my recipes but if it is essential for recipe success, I will always draw your attention to that. For this recipe a few extra herbs don't make too much difference, however, less is better than overdoing it!
