Spaghetti All Assassina: Ingredients

For two dimensions you will need:

1 liter of water
150 grams of tomato paste
0.5 teaspoon of salt
6 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
0.5 tsp red chillies, finely chopped
350 ml pureed tomatoes
300 grams of spaghetti
Salt and pepper
Some olive oil

This is done like this: Bring some water and tomato paste to a boil, add salt and simmer on low heat for ten minutes.

Heat the olive oil in a large pan and fry the garlic and chilli for a few seconds. Deglaze with pureed tomatoes and simmer for two minutes.

Place the green auravar in the pan, press it lightly and cover with the sauce. Saute for a few minutes, do not stir this time. Using tongs, flip the pasta and fry the other side until browned and caramelized.

As you would cook a risotto, gradually add some hot tomato water: once the tomato water has evaporated, fry the pasta briefly before adding more tomato water. Repeat steps until pasta is al dente.
