Cherry Tomato Spaghetti In 15 Minutes

image

Recently I’ve been under the weather and the only thing that will truly cheer me up is a large bowl of fresh tomato spaghetti. But the thing is when I want spaghetti, I want it now! The same goes for my 3 year old who now thinks I am Samantha from
“Bewitched” who can just twitch her nose and magically his spaghetti appears! So I have a lot to live up to lol! Didn’t you just love that show? Ironically I used to sit and watch it, devouring a bowl of spaghetti hoops when I was young!

This extremely easy and homely recipe is soooo goooooood! I cook the fresh cherry tomatoes first and make it into a sauce, only then to cook the spaghetti in that very sauce! OMG! The results are silky, satin spaghetti draped in a juicy explosion of tomato and garlic flavours. Plus you get instant spaghetti! How you want it! When you want it! So I have a happy 3 year old and a happy me!

  1. What a great recipe! This is the sort of recipe I like to call ‘Quick, Easy & Good’. In fact, I made a small cookbook for my family and one of the chapters is called ‘Quick, Easy & Good’. Pinning this immediately !
