Recipe idea: Spaghetti with Tomato & Aubergine Sauce

The creaminess of the Aubergine & Basil Paste gives a silky smooth taste with this sauce. This is so simple to make and the combination of tomato and aubergine provides plenty of flavor.

Ingredients:

Spaghetti
Canned chopped tomato
3 cloves of garlic
1 small onion
Extra virgin olive oil
Olive Branch Aubergine & Basil Paste
Salt & pepper
Fresh basil

Cooking Instructions:

1. Chop the onion and garlic and saute in extra virgin olive oil over a low heat.
2. Add the canned tomatoes, a little salt & pepper, cover the pan and cook for about 20 minutes.
3. In a separate pan, boil plenty of water for the spaghetti. As it comes to the boil, add some salt and as the heat intensifies, add the spaghetti.
4. Return to the pan with the tomatoes and add 2 tablespoons of Aubergine & Basil Paste. Let this simmer for 10 minutes with the lid on, stirring regularly so the paste binds together with the tomato.
5. Once the spaghetti is cooked, mix with the sauce and stir well. Serve with some freshly chopped basil.

Vinegar

It just tastes of vinegar. The aubergine is undiscernible. I also don't like the slimy gloopy consistency. I had a little bit of it and decided just to throw it out.

Tasty spread

This was quite tasty, and I did enjoy it, although there the flavour of the aubergine was a little overwhelmed by other flavours.

taste of vinegar and has mostly sunflower oil

Everything is in the title. It is false advertising when they say it contains extra Virgin olive oil but it is 1% and the rest is cheap sunflower oil
