Real vegetarian food, served in an imaginary world...

Another recipe, inspired by Zelda's new Jamie Oliver cookbook, with some adaptations. Also see Red Cabbage and Orange Salad.

2tbsp olive oil
100g rustic, large breadcrumbs
2tsp chilli flakes
2 cloves garlic, crushed
15g fresh herbs, roughly chopped
8 sundried tomatoes in olive oil, chopped
160g dried spaghetti

Start off by cooking the spaghetti in boiling salted water.

Heat the olive oil in a separate large pan and fry the breadcrumbs and 1tsp of the chilli flakes until the breadcrumbs are golden. 
Then remove them from the pan.
Place the tomatoes in their oil and the garlic in the same pan and fry gently until the garlic is golden. 
Add the herbs.
Drain the spaghetti, reserving some of the cooking water.
Add the spaghetti and a little of the starchy water to the pan and combine.
Transfer to a bowl and sprinkle the breadcrumbs and the remaining chilli flakes over the top.


  1. YUM! Another must try, easy, and full of flavor! I'll probably have to have a little Parmesan with it though...

    1. I agree that a bit of cheese would be good, although it is very tasty as it is. Breadcrumbs on spaghetti - who would have thought it could be so yummy?
