Natural Heaven Spaghetti Pomodoro - By Chef Nicola

This is a wonderfully simple recipe that’s sure to keep your hunger at bay, no matter what kind of day you’ve had. We love that this recipe is a great way to get some fruit and veg goodness into you with the added benefit of being combined with our wonderfully tasty hearts of palm spaghetti - it’s wonderful!

 

If you’re a spice lover, we would suggest adding some chili flakes to the pan at the same time as the garlic. As you cook them, stir the contents of the pan around constantly to prevent burning. This will put some wonderful heat into the meal as you cook, which is nearly impossible to hate.

If the garlic or chili flakes start to catch, we would suggest adding some small splashes of water to the pan. Be sure not to add too much, though, as the water will boil very quickly, which can lead to oil spitting at you during the cooking process. Therefore, aim for simply a tablespoon or so at a time. This will slow the cooking process down nicely, allowing you to extract as much flavor from your ingredients as possible.

To boost the dish even further, cook some bacon or chicken in the pan at the same time as your garlic - it will be impeccably flavored, and add some great protein to the plate.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups hearts of palm spaghetti
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp fresh basil
  • 1 tsp finely minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp tomato puree
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Method:

  1. This is a great recipe as it allows you to boost the contents of a jar of sauce with relatively little effort at all - how convenient! Start by taking the low-carb spaghetti out of the packet and rinsing it under the faucet - this is simply to keep the spaghetti nice and moist while we prepare the other ingredients. Leave it to drain in your strainer for the entire time that you’re cooking - this will lead to perfect spaghetti, later on.
  2. Next, add the olive oil to a skillet, and allow it to come up to roughly medium heat. Ideally, the oil should be shimmering before you add any other ingredients to the pan.
  3. Add the garlic to the pan, and stir it immediately. Keep the garlic moving, or it’s quite likely to burn, which wouldn’t be ideal for your meal.
  4. When the garlic is pleasantly aromatic, add the tomato puree to the pan, and stir that with the garlic. Allow that to become aromatic, too.
  5. Finally, add the tomato sauce to the jar, and stir it into the mixture. This will heat through quite quickly, so be sure to stir thoroughly for the sauce to be well distributed among the other ingredients.
  6. Add the drained spaghetti to the pan containing the sauce, and then toss the two together to combine. It shouldn’t take too long to combine the two, they’re made for one another!
  7. Finally, serve. If you’d like to make the plate a little fancier, consider throwing a little grated cheese on top of the pasta.
