I apologise for neglecting the page recently, im sure you understnad that as students workload really does fluctuate.

Here is something extra easy, 36p tomato pasta with cheese:

8 ingedients, couldn't be simpler. makes 2 large servings

1 Tbsp oil
1 med Onion
1 dorot garlic cube
1 tsp mixed herbs
1 canned tomatoes
1 tsp of sugar (takes away acidity in canned tomatoes)
1 stock cube
1/2 bag pasta

1. Chop onion and place in the pan with oil, allow to cook slowly untill brown. 3-5 min

2. Add garlic, cook for a further 1-2 min (don't let it burn or it will taste bitter)

3. add canned tomatoes, mixed herbs, stock cube and suger. simmer without a lid for 10-15 min, till liquid is reduced and thickened sightly

4. once sauce is simmering put past into boiling water. cook till it isn't quite done, still a little hard.

5. drain pasta at this stage and add sauce, contue to cook together for a further 3-5 min. this finishes cooking the pasta and adheres the sause to it.

6. serve with a teaspoon of parmesan.
