Ingredients

  • Spaghetti
  • Ketchup
  • Oil
  • Vegetables: Onion, Bell pepper, etc.
  • Garlic (optional)
  • Sugar (optional)
  • parsley (optional)
  • crushed chilli flakes (optional)

How To Make Ketchup Spaghetti

Start making your ketchup spaghetti by taking a large pot, bringing plenty of water to a boil and cooking your spaghetti according to instructions. Once cooked, save around 1/4 cup of the pasta water and strain.

Heat 1/2 tbsp of oil or vegan butter on a non-stick pan on medium-high heat and add sliced onion and bell pepper on one side. I ended up adding sliced veggie hot dog on the other side (or sometimes smoked tofu) and sauté for around 3-4 minutes separately until veggies soften. Feel free to add this too.

Mix everything in the pan already and add minced garlic. Sauté for another minute.

Add the rest of the oil or vegan butter (another 1/2 tbsp), ketchup and a pinch of sugar (which you can omit but I find neutralizes the ketchup if you don’t want a super ketchup flavour). Mix well.

Again, when spaghetti is cooked, save around 1/4 cup of the pasta water, and drain your spaghetti. Add your spaghetti to the pan. Mix well and add a splash of pasta water and mix. Add more if you prefer. Cook together for a couple of minutes.

Give it a taste and add more ketchup, if needed, and add salt and pepper to taste.

Top your ketchup spaghetti with fresh parsley and cashew parmesan (optional) and enjoy.
