Tomato spaghetti


This is by far my favourite way to eat leftover spaghetti at the moment. It’s so quick and simple – admittedly so simple that it doesn’t even really need a recipe, but I wanted to add it to the site for inspiration. The fresh tomato and parsley give it such amazing flavour that it’s hard to believe there’s not more to it.

  1. Pop the spaghetti in a bowl, add the tomatoes and butter and pop in the microwave for 2 minutes or until the butter has melted and the tomatoes are hot and a bit mushy.
