Months ago, my husband bought tons of pasta. There was a good deal on it, and we figured it's something that doesn't spoil fast. As it is, we still have a lot of pasta left, and since Pesach is just around the corner, it must be eaten before it's time to get rid of all the chametz.
So we have been eating lots and lots of pasta in the past few weeks. My husband discovered a good, very simple, very quick recipe for pasta sauce - recipe and illustration photo taken from here. We did make some modifications. See here:
Sweet and spicy pasta sauce (serves 4)
2 onions - chop and fry until golden
add 3 cloves of garlic
add 5 tbsps of tomato paste and
2 ripe tomatoes, thinly chopped
add 2 tbsps of sweet paprika
1 tbsp sugar
add a glass of boiling water and mix
salt and pepper to taste
(we also add a tbsp of chili sauce)
Cook your favorite pasta (approx. 2 cups dry) and mix.
It makes a quick and simple dinner. And with some luck, all that pasta will be gone before Pesach.
