Method

  1. Boil the spaghetti. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a small non-stick pan, add the garlic and fry, stirring all the time, until golden. Add the chilli, tomatoes and capers and fry for a further 3-4 mins until the tomatoes start to break down.
  2. Add 2 tbsp of the pasta cooking water to the tomatoes, then drain the pasta and return to the pan. Pour in the tomato sauce and toss everything together well. Serve as it is or sprinkled with freshly grated Parmesan.

Tried this for the first time 5 days ago and have made it again since. Such an easy after work meal. Literally foolproof.

Took very little prep - good for 'just-came-back-from-work' evenings when you need a quickie. Left the chili out by mistake - it was still very good. Love the slightly acidic sort of taste capers add. Will make again... and again!

I left out the chilli as my young children don't like it. They loved it, so we are having it again this week.
