Spaghetti in tomato sauce

This is the easiest tomato sauce I have ever made for pasta, it is very simple yet tastes divine.  As I have already said at my home me and my husband love to have pasta any time. The main ingredient for this recipe as the name suggests is tomatoes. I always like to use crushed tomatoes in my cooking as it give wonderful color to the food and also I do not have to go through the process of washing and chopping them.

    My hubby and I love pasta too and thats our fixed saturday lunch 🙂 Spaghetti looks simply mouthwatering 🙂

  10. My wife and I just came back from our third trip to Sicily, where the spaghetti is always delicious — and looks exactly like your photo. I’ve been making sauce for many years, but it wasn’t until our first Sicily trip that I realized the sauce could be better. I just didn’t know how. I finally realize, and you’ve confirmed it, that the missing ingredient is onion. Unfortunately, my wife won’t eat anything with onion in it. Dilemma. Eat alone? Move to Sicily? What if I put the onion in whole, for flavor, then take it out?
