This is super quick to cook and called ” magic” spaghetti because you cook the pasta and sauce all together in a frying pan. The trick is to measure your water carefully and use a large shallow pan with a lid wide enough to fit the pasta lying down. You might need to add a bit more water as you go but start with the amount suggested and only add more if absolutely necessary.. It’s from ” A Modern Way to Cook” by Anna Jones.
I already have a version of Spaghetti Vesuvius on this site, but this version from Sophie Grigson’s ” Sunshine Food” is good when fresh tomatoes are in season. You want the ripest, fully flavoured tomatoes for this.
