• 1 packet of Penne pasta
1 Cook according to directions on
packet and set aside.
2 Drizzle a little olive oil over the
top once cooked and drained to
stop it sticking.

Pasta Sauce Ingredients:
• 3 cans of chopped tomatoes
• Olive oil
• ½ small onion – diced
• ½ tsp sugar (optional)
• 3 small garlic cloves – diced
• 1 cup water
• Fresh basil
• Salt and Pepper
• Grated Mozzarella cheese (or fresh Mozzarella cheese)

1 First make the red sauce – it’s easy!
2 Cook onion and garlic in some olive oil until soft (this is when you should to add mushrooms or chopped up vegetables). Add tinned tomatoes, water, sugar and seasoning. Then add fresh basil and reduce on a low heat for 30 – 45 minutes.
3 Pour sauce over cooked pasta and mix in some cheese.
4 Heat oven to 180°C and place the pasta in the oven until the cheese is melted and it’s nice and crunchie
on top!
* If you have left over tomatoes that need to be used chopped them up and pop them in! You can add olives
and capers – be creative! Left over mushrooms? Anything goes with this dish!
