Found some Concentrato di Pomodoro in the fridge.

Ei, vienintele followere, išradau naują receptą! Tiesą pasakius du. Tik prisimink, kad didžioji dalis idėjų pasaulyje yra building up on previous ideas.


Pasta (spaghetti) for 3

Olive oil (Napolina, lemon and dill flavoured)
Tomatoes 2
Dried basil
Garlic cloves 3
Lemon juice
Concentrato di pomodoro (tomato pasta?) 50g

Boil pasta in salted water until it's still a bit hard on the inside; if you're not planning on serving it right away, bear in mind that even if drained, pasta will continue to soften and it's not as good overcooked.

For the sauce use a frying pan. Throw diced tomatoes in plenty of preheated olive oil, sprinkle dried basil and chopped garlic on top, mix it, add a dash of lemon juice and the concentrated tomatoes :), mix it again, add some salt to your liking, mix it yet again (I know...) and let it rest off the hob for a bit.
Mix it well with pasta, and sprinkle with oregano and pepper for decoration. Oh, I kept on adding hot water to it because it was too concentrated and kept on drying further. You have to dilute the sauce to mix it evenly with pasta.


For cooking couscous, use the same recipe I've reccomended previously, but add a bag of Chai tea and a bit of butter to the boiling water.

Olive oil (Napolina, lemon and dill flavoured)
Tomatoes 3
Dried basil
Concentrato di pomodoro 50g
Greek style salad cheese 100g
Eggs 2
Thai sweet chilli sauce

Again, diced tomatoes went into a fry pan with the preheated oil, basil was sprinkled liberally, concentrate was added... I don't like this way of writing. OK, then sprinkle the crumbled cheese, throw in the two eggs, sprinkle some salt on them and, this important, don't mix it too much. Don't move anything until the eggs start turning white, then mix it a bit and leave it again. But make sure the sauce doesn't start burning and, also keep on adding hot water trough the course to dilute it. Let it rest off-hob.
Add it on top of the couscous, add some sweet chilli sauce, squeeze few drops of lemon on top and decorate it with a half a slice of lemon sticking out of the pool of the chilli sauce and swallow your tongues :)
