Pasta-sauce on a budget

Hey guys!
Are you sick and tired of pasta with ketchup when your money is a bit tight?
This recipe is fool-proof, and super tasty!

All you need is:

Tomatoes; 4 big or a handful small ones
Parmesan cheese
Garlic and onions
and for seasoning; salt and pepper.

Firstly everything needs to be chopped into smaller bits and pieces – except the pasta.
Put the onions and garlic on a hot saucepan with olive oil – the oil should be hot. The onions should be glass-like. Then you put in the bacon onto the same pan, and let it cook for about 5 min. Then add the tomatoes and bring all of it to a boil, and let it simmer while the pasta is cooking.
When you’ve added the tomatoes start boiling water for the pasta, and when the pasta has been in, for two min, add two table spoons of the water into the saucepan, with the bacon etc.
When the pasta is done, you take the water from the pasta and put the pasta onto the saucepan, steering and bring it to a boil again, this time while adding some grated parmesan cheese – and then: ready to serve!

If you feel like doing something extra for your dish, try to use fresh pasta – or maybe homemade, and use some really good smoked bacon that aren’t already sliced at the store. This will bring some more luxury into the dish and the flavors will be super intense.

Within my family we have always loved food – no exceptions. In this house we live to wine & dine. Wether it’s Italian, the French cuisine, Asian or the Aussie’s BBQ’s, we all got a favourite dish. When I cook, I cook with my heart. On a daily basis I work as a lifeguard, swim coach and assistant consultant at accounting company, further more I’m studying at Aarhus University where I’m about to take a masters degree. As it might appear I’m fairly busy, but one thing will be sure, the food and recipes on this blog is coming directly from the heart!
