Homemade Tomato Pasta and Garlic Bread

As autumn has arrived to Finland, the need for satiating and hearty Sunday meals grows. This slow and easy dinner or even lunch recipe is a great way to satisfy that warm autumn meal craving. As the recipe is a big one, you’re left with heaps of leftovers for the next day or to be shared with friends.

TIP! Add chili oil or other preferred toppings to the pasta to make it a bit more you. I paired the pasta with the Marinated Chickpeas found from the No-Sushi Sushi Bowl recipe ❤️

Ingredients for the pasta 🍅

500 g Pasta      
1 kg Tomatoes     
1 Red chili     
2 White onions     
1 Bunch of garlic     
2 tbsp Oil     
2 dl Vegan chili cream (I used Planti Cooking Chili)    
400 g Crushed tomatoes (in a tin)  
½ bunch of Fresh basil 

Garlic Bread 🧄

1 Ciabatta 
6 small Cloves of garlic 
4-5 tbsp Neutral oil  
1 tsp Dried basil 
1tsp Salt 
Black pepper

Making the Pasta:

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Add the whole fresh tomatoes, and chili to an oven safe dish. Prepare the onions by chopping both ends and peeling them. Cut the top off the garlic head and place both the garlic bunch and peeled onions on to the oven dish as well. Drizzle everything with oil and bake in the oven for 45 minutes.
  2. Add the baked veggies (remove the chili stem and squeeze the garlic from their shells) to a blender with the chili cream, crushed tomatoes and fresh basil. Blend everything.
  3. Cook the pasta in salted water in a big pot but leave the pasta a bit undercooked.
  4. Once the pasta is slightly undercooked and drained, add the blended tomato sauce to the pasta and mix. Let the pasta simmer in the sauce on low heat for 5 minutes. Then serve with the garlic bread and ENJOY ❤️

Making the Garlic Bread:

  1. Cut the ciabatta in half horizontally.
  2. In a small dish, mix together the oil and the rest of the ingredients.
  3. Brush the oil mixture to the ciabatta halves evenly.
  4. Bake in 200 degrees Celsius for about 15 minutes until the sides of the ciabatta turn golden brown. TIP! In case the garlic bits start to burn, you can lower the heat of the oven and add a piece of foil on top of the breads.
