Make a nice, big green salad for this perfect cheesy spaghetti bake dinner.
Servings: 4 people

INGREDIENTS
 

  • 1 pound/450 grams spaghetti
  • 3 tomatoes, peeled and finely chopped or 2 cups crushed tomatoes
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, pressed
  • 7 ounces/200 grams tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 cup/240 milliliters heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • tablespoons/20 grams butter
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon coarse salt
  • 6 ounces/150 grams cheddar, shredded
  • A handful basil, chopped
  • 6 baby mozzarella balls (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Heat up the oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Fry the onion with a pinch of salt until golden.
  • Add the garlic, tomato paste, spices and tomatoes and fry for about 5 minutes.
  • Add the butter and whipping cream and stir. When the sauce starts bubbling, add 4 cups of boiling water. Add the pasta to the pot, stir well, and add water to fully cover the pasta, if necessary. Cook for 11 minutes over medium-high heat.
  • Preheat the oven to 430 °F (220 °C).
  • Transfer to a baking pan, spread the mozzarella balls on top and sprinkle cheddar and oregano (you can add chili flakes too).
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until the mozzarella turns golden, then broil on high for 3-4 minutes to let the top reach a nice brown tan.
