Under 15 minutes: {Recipe} Easy Spaghetti with Tomato Sauce and Fried Egg

Today is Saturday. a self-declared do-nothing day. a day usually spent with a book in hand and definitely not a day where I cook something, photograph and share here on the blog.

But today is different.

I just couldn't resist from posting this quick, utterly, buttery recipe - pasta with tomato sauce and fried egg on the side, a combination made in heaven. literally.

{Recipe} Easy Spaghetti with Tomato Sauce and Fried Egg

Serves 1


1 fistful of spaghetti
1 tbsp butter
1/2 cup (or more, based on how tomatoe-y you want) home made tomato sauce (or) store-bought tomato sauce
few red pepper flakes
handful of frozen peas, microwaved for 2 minutes
1 egg
1/2 tbsp dried basil leaves + 1 tsp to sprinkle on the fried egg (if desired)
salt - to taste


1. Boil water and add salt to it. Add spagetti and let it cook al dente. Mine was done in 8-9 minutes. Drain. Keep aside.

2. Meanwhile melt butter in a pan and add tomato sauce and peas. Cook for 2 minutes and add cooked spaghetti. Crush basil leaves between your palms and sprinkle on pasta with few red pepper flakes. Mix gently.

3. Heat a pan, add a wee bit of butter or oil, break an egg, sprinkle some salt and basil leaves.

Serve pasta piping hot with fried egg on the side. Yum Yum! This definitely made my day with its simplicity and deliciousness. :-)

I never realized that updating my recipe index would be this tedious and time-consuming. But I did it - neatly categorized and added all the recipes ever posted on the blog. Check it out for some fun breakfast/lunch/dinner ideas. :-) Your feedback is always welcome.
