4 cloves Garlic
1 bunch of Fresh Basil (optional)
3g Dried Basil
15ml Olive oil
a pinch of Salt
a pinch of Black pepper
15g Parmesan cheese (optional)

1. First of all, you need to boil some spaghetti at the beginning. We have taught 8 tips to cook pasta perfectly before, you can see the post HERE: (please click)

3. After that, pick the basil leaves, you can also reserving some baby leaves for garnish. It’s optional. Then cut it with julienne cut (finely slices). We just used dried basil so we skipped this step.

4. Moreover, preheat your saucepan to medium heat, add in olive oil, onion and garlic, then stir frying for about 6 minutes. Be carefully do not let your garlic and onion get burnt. The mixture after stir frying should be golden brown and the onion will became transparent. Then seasoning with salt, pepper and dried basil.



5. Add tomatoes. Keep stirring and you will see the mixture will become watery because the tomato juices but it’s not enough water for covering, so add the remaining spaghetti water. The amount of water just depends on how many sauce you needed.
Then cook for around 10 minutes with lid until the tomatoes thoroughly cooked and soften. Seasoning again, you can adjust the taste.

6. Furthermore, add the spaghetti and mix well. Remember one point, we have reduced time for boiling pasta so we can cook for the remaining time in here. DO NOT over cook. The best texture of pasta should be “AL Dente”, in English it translate as “to the tooth”, it means pasta is soft enough to eat but still have a bit of bite and firmness.


Mix well

7. Finally, add some extra-virgin olive oil for coating, it gives more flavor boost to the pasta. Remove them from the pan and plating. Garnish it by basil and Parmesan cheese. (You can use microplane to finely grate the cheese and sprinkle it on top)


DA DA! Finished
