Gourmet Garden Blog Off: Spaghetti Marinara
1kg Marinara Mix
500g of Spaghetti
2 tablespoons of Gourmet Garden Chunky Garlic
100g White Wine
1 teaspoon of vegetable stock
Dice onion and shallots and set aside. Heat small amount of olive oil in frying pan or pot. Add diced onion and gourmet garden chunky garlic. Cook until onion turns translucent and then add marinara mix. Cook on medium heat until prawns start to change colour and then add white wine, cream and vegetable stock. Cook on low/medium heat for about 10 minutes. You need to make sure that the heat doesn't get to hot or you will over cook your seafood.
Whilst doing the above bring to boil a pot of water and cook spaghetti. Once spaghetti is cooked drain and add to marinara sauce. Combine well and then add shallots, combine again.
It is now ready to serve.
Remember that I normally cook enough to feed our family of 5 and have enough leftover for B's lunches. The above quantities easily feed our family of 5 and provided 2 lunches for B.
