3 tablespoons olive oil
3 large cloves garlic (chopped)
1 teaspoon red chilli flakes
2 (400g) cans chopped tomatoes
1 teaspoon brown sugar (optional)
Salt & pepper to taste
Freshly grated parmesan cheese
handful basil leaves
Over medium heat add the olive oil to a saucepan.
Add the chopped garlic and let it cook for a minute, just long enough to release the flavour, don’t let it brown.
Add the red chilli flakes, chopped tomatoes, and sugar (if using). Simmer the sauce on a low heat for about, for about 15 minutes. Stir occasionally.
While you wait for the sauce to reduce add some salt to boiling water and cook the pasta as directed on the packet.
Use salt and/or pepper to season the sauce as needed.
Drain the pasta. Add both the pasta and sauce into a pan and stir until the pasta is covered. Top with freshly grated parmesan cheese and a few basil leaves.
