I love that my 10 year old son knows how to name his recipes with confidence!
My bountiful garden has given us chillis and tomatoes and they seem to have all gone ping and ripened at once. Early one Saturday morning as we gathered them in Frankie decided he wanted too cook up some lunch for his daddy. Daddy is a big chilli fan.
We searched for chilli and tomato sauce and found various recipes. Our own version was sort of a combination of those we read and the things we had in!
I big fat red hot chilli
I big red obnion
A tsp of garlic granules
3 big handfuls of cherry tomatoes
We chopped everything up nice and fine ( I actually let Frankie use a sharp knife for the first time ever) and with fear and anxiety (mine not his) we survived intact.
The onion and chillis were fried gently for about 5 minutes in the olive oil and the tomatoes were them added along with the seasoning.
We left it all to cook gently for about 20 minutes and the gorgeous aroma the filled our kitchen made we want to leave it even longer.
It was bottled and later heated up and served with Spaghetti, crusty bread and a few salad leaves. It was absolutely spectacular (hence the name)
Tomato and Chilli Spaghetti Sauce
I do think using garden fresh ingredients added to the taste but it really was, for such a simple dish, an absolute taste sensation. Well done Frankie and our garden! I’m proud of you both.
