Spaghetti with Herbs

The moment I read this recipe I knew I would need to make it… little did I realize I would make this on whim while entertaining my neighbor one Friday evening. This dish is beyond and delicious and super easy to make. My new favorite Italian cooking blog is bell’ alimento. It means “beautiful food” in Italian, and boy, does Paula create some beautiful food. I encourage you to stop by her blog and try some of her recipes.

Prep:  5 minutes 

Cook: 20 minutes 

Serves: 4


  • 1 pound spaghetti
  • 2 cups fresh ripe tomatoes – peeled (I cheated and used 1 large box of diced POM tomatoes)
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed with fresh mint, finely chopped Plus extra for garnish
  • 1/4 cup loosely packed fresh flat leaf Italian parsley, finely chopped
  • *1/4 cup loosely packed fresh basil, chopped (I added this to the recipe) Plus extra for garnish
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 cup broth
  • Grated Parmesan, to garnish


1. In a large sauce pan add the box of diced tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil, mint, parsley, basil, and garlic.   Season with salt and with a generous amount of pepper. Stir well to combine; cook over medium- low heat.

2. While the sauce is cooking place a large pot of water generously seasoned with salt. When water is boiling add the spaghetti and cook until al dente. Drain.
3. Once the tomatoes start to break down add the broth, lower heat and allow sauce to reduce. The  sauce and the pasta should be ready at the same time.
4. Add the drained pasta to the sauce pan, toss well to combine. Garnish with grated parmesan and herbs. 

Serving Suggestion: Calamari Fritti
