Hello there! Have you missed me? I know that I am unacceptable since my posts are rare now …. But you know, summer comes with a variety of activities, high temperatures push us to run to the beaches, and the general climate of laxity, has admittedly influenced me! And they have not only affected myself, but also the content of my posts! Today’s recipe is a simple spaghetti with red sauce! A sauce though, that each and every one of you should have in their collection as it is the most classic and tasty recipe. Because we all love good innovations and more sophisticated sauces, but you know well that our simple classic recipes are priceless!
Note: I chose wholemeal spaghetti, as in my opinion is more delicious, more hearty, and healthier as they are rich in fiber.

In a saucepan, boil the spaghetti in plenty of water.
Grated the onion and garlic on the grater and chop the basil.
In a large and deep pan, place the olive oil, grated onion, garlic and basil and sauté at moderate to high temperature.
