The Home Cook's Kitchen
small brown/yellow onion
red bird's eye chilli
or sub ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes/chilli flakes
100g, or sub bacon if you can't find proscuitto
can diced tomatoes
170g, fresh works best
In a food processor, blend the onion, garlic, chilli, prosciutto until chopped up and smooth.
In a frying pan, heat the olive oil then add the prosciutto mix, stirring for about 5 minutes until fragrant.
Add the chicken stock and tomatoes and simmer for 15-20 minutes until the sauce has thickened.
Meanwhile, make pasta. Boil spaghetti in salt water until al dente (follow packet instruction if not sure how to cook pasta!)
Once pasta is cooked and sauce is thickened, place strained pasta in a bowl, top with sauce and parsley and parmesan. Season with pepper.
Serve with a chilled glass of white wine and crusty bread.
If you can find it, prosciutto tastes better. We couldn't find any that was relatively inexpensive so we used bacon and it worked just as well!
