Ingredients:

  • 500g Spaghetti

  1. Heat oil in a large sauce pan along with clove of garlic add tomato sauce and bring to boil than let simmer for half an hour.
  2. While sauce is cooking heat water in another large sauce pan and wait for it to boil.
  3. Once boiled put spaghetti in cook for about 4/5 minutes, then drain spaghetti and wait for it to cool.
  4. In the meantime get the alfoil and baking paper and cut into 4 – 6 large squares – place baking paper on top of alfoil ready to assemble.
  5. Take some of the tomato sauce and pop into cooled spaghetti – not a lot but enough to give it a nice red texture.

  7. Fold the alfoil and baking paper into a little package and put on a baking tray.
