Spaghetti with roasted tamato and pepper sauce

 What could be better? Family night with a good movie and some real comfort food. We had a cosy family evening at home, watching Toy Story 2, which is a current favouritein our home. Both children run around pretending to be Buzz Lightyear or sit in their spaceship ( read toybox) and go off on space missions into the galaxy.

I made a yummy pasta dish which was a big hit with both big and small family members. Here is the recipe.Eat and enjoy. Do you have any easy recipes for family nights? I would love to hear from you.

Spaghetti with roasted tomato and pepper sauce

1 packet spaghetti
6 tomatoes
2 red peppers
garlic to taste
tbsp mixed herbs
50 mls olive oil
2 tbsp tomato paste
pinch of salt
1 cup grated cheese

  • Cook spaghetti as per instructions on packet
  •  While the spaghetti is cooking, slice the tomatoes in half,cut the peppers into strips and place on a baking tray
  • Sprinkle garlic flakes ( or fresh chopped garlic), mixed herbs and some salt over the tomatoes and peppers.
  • Sprinkle some olive oil on the tomatoes and peppers and grill in oven until they are soft.
  • Once the tomatoes and peppers are cooked, put them into a blender, add a bit of extra olive oil and about 1 tablespoons of tomato paste and a tsp of sugar and blend until pureed.
  • Once spaghetti is done, drain and then mix in pureed tomato sauce.
  • Mix in the grated cheese ( I prefer cheddar) and serve
