Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes


  • A wide pot or pan


  • 1 lbs (450 grams) Dried pasta
  • 1 Yellow onion
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 1 large Tomato
  • 1 Chili optional
  • 1 tbsp Tomato paste
  • 1 Bay leaf
  • ½ tsp Dried basil
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 4 cups (1 liter) Vegetable stock
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • Start by dicing an onion and slicing 2 garlic cloves. Dice the tomato and finely chop a chili if using.
  • In a wide pot or pan, place all of the ingredients and turn on the heat. You have to make sure that the pasta is fully covered with the liquid.
  • Cover with the lid, and let it cook for 8 minutes. Stir the pasta every 2 minutes. Then cook uncovered until the pasta is al dente and the sauce has thickened. You might need to add a little bit of more stock or hot water if the sauce is too thick.
  • Garnish with chopped parsley or basil leaves, and more salt and pepper if desired.


  • You can use any shape of dried pasta for this recipe.
