Create a fantastically simple spaghetti with tomato sauce dish
with ingredients straight from our site!



This simple pomodoro sauce is at the base of Italian cooking. So much so that Italians refer to this dish simply as sugo, which means ‘sauce’. It is possibly the most universal sauce of all and can be used plain or as the base for other more complicated sauces. Served with Penne, it’s a kids’ favourite!

Rather than struggling to find the right tomatoes, why not try Mutti Salsa Pronta. There is no better pasta than De Cecco Spaghetti to accompany this sauce and finish it all off with a drizzle of Farchioni Classico Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil.


1 jar of
Mutti Salsa Pronta Datterini 300g Ready-to-Use Cherry Tomato Sauce
De Cecco Spaghetti No’12 500g
Farchioni Classico Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil 1l

Basil leaves

1 teaspoon salt


1. To begin, bring a large pot of water to the boil. When boiled, add salt and pasta.

2. Cook the pasta following the instructions on the packet.

3. While waiting for the pasta to cook, gently heat the Mutti tomato sauce in a separate pot.

4. When the pasta is cooked “al dente” (roughly 11 minutes), drain and place in a large serving bowl.

5. Quickly add the warm tomato sauce and mix until all the pasta has been coated.

6. Dress the pasta with the basil leaves and a drizzle of olive oil.

7. Enjoy!
