Simple Spaghetti

Guys, I’ve given up bread. This is my fifth day without it and I can genuinely say that I am seeing buttery baguettes everywhere I look. So I have to fill the void with another carb, my main love: pasta. I suppose I’ve been quite good for a while now as I replaced white pasta with wholemeal quite some time ago. But I still like to indulge, this is one of the things I make on repeat for myself. It is super simple but amazingly delicious and if like me, you love tomatoes; this one is for you. Before I get to the recipe, I’d like to point you in the direction of this amazing pan my Mom bought me for my birthday. It’s a Paella pan from Wilko, but I genuinely think I will be cooking everything in it, everything.

Roasted Tomato & Garlic Prosciutto Pasta

If you make this, I promise the smell that fills your house is worth it alone. Sweet bubbling tomatoes, garlic and chilli waft out of the pan like nectarine for tomato lovers like me. Now if you have a friend or spouse that doesn’t like tomatoes, like my husband…they’ll still eat it. In fact they’ll even have seconds, I mean he was pretty hungry but he really doesn’t like tomatoes. He did request for extra meat, in fact he requested salami but he’s not the cook so.

On the other hand, if you want to make this veggie go ahead. The sweet flavours of the roasted garlic and tomato make this flavourful enough. But I love adding salty prosciutto…to anything really. I’ve used wholewheat pasta because we cut out white pasta and bread a long time ago in our house. Can’t resist a potato though, potatoes and cheese are my downfall.
