- Yield3-4 Bowls
For the sauce
- 1 pack WTH Giniling
- 1 yellow onion chopped
- 4 garlic cloves minced or pressed
- 1 small can diced tomatoes
- 1 small can tomato sauce
- 4 tablespoons tomato paste
- 2 cups vegetable broth (water will do if no vegetable broth is available)
- 2 whole cloves
- 1 bay leaf
- 4 teaspoons sugar
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley or 4 teaspoons dried
- 1 full sprig of basil
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 dried chilli (optional)
- 3 tablespoon vegan butter (or non vegan butters)
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- Spaghetti noodles
Making the sauce:
In a large heavy bottomed pot over medium high heat, add the 2 tablespoons of butter and the chopped onion and saute till slightly browned before adding the garlic. Saute for about 2 minutes. This would also be the right time to add the dried chilli if you would like a spicier sauce.
Add the rest of the ingredients (except the spaghetti noodles, WTH Giniling, and Parmesan), stir, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to simmer, stir and cover with a lid, and cook for at least 1 hour on medium low heat, stirring occasionally.
Add WTH Giniling minutes before switching off the heat. Remove basil.
Cook the pasta:
Cook the spaghetti according to the package directions in generously salted water. Drain and mix into the spaghetti sauce.
Serve with your choice of cheese and chopped fresh parsley if desired.
