An Italian (and Vegan) yummy pasta recipe.
Porzioni 2


  • 160 g spelt spaghetti
  • 250 g date tomatoes
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 handful coarse salt
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • salt pepper
  • dried oregano to taste


  • Fill a large pot three-quarters of the way up with water, add the coarse salt and bring to the boil.
  • Meanwhile put in a pan the clove of garlic (chopped or whole if you prefer a delicate flavor), add the olive oil and put it on the stove over medium heat.
  • When the garlic begins to sizzle and oil is fragrant add date tomatoes cut in halves. If you wish you can now remove the clove of garlic.
  • Season tomatoes with salt and pepper and let simmer over a gentle heat.
  • As soon as the water reaches the boil, pour the spaghetti and cook for 4 minutes.
  • Take the spaghetti out of water using a big slotted spoon and stir them into the date tomatoes sauce.
  • Add two cups of spaghetti cooking water and let simmer uncovered for 4 minutes over medium heat.
  • As the pasta dries add more spaghetti cooking water so that the pasta is always almost covered with water.
  • After 4 minutes turn up the heat so that the remaining water dries out completely.
  • Turn off the heat, add plenty of oregano and enjoy.


This pasta can be spiced up by adding red pepper flakes to taste, just before serving.
