Lazy Sunday Spaghetti

The day I don’t feel up to cooking I make this all in one dish for my family. It’s a hearty meal and my son loves it. It is ready in a jiffy and much of it is out of a can. Its my lazy Sunday quick fix.


2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 can of baked beans, you could use any other canned beans too

1 tablespoon fresh or dried oregano

1 bunch spring onion

Half a packet of spaghetti boiled al-dente as per packet instructions (i.e just a little undone but not mushy)

1/2 teaspoon mixed Italian seasoning herbs

6 cloves garlic grated

1/2 cup of sun-dried tomatoes soaked in half a cup of warm water

1 green chili (mild heat)


Heat oil in a wok. Add the whites of the spring onions chopped fine and saute for a minute. Reserve the green stalks for later. Add the garlic and saute for another minute. Now add the oregano and Italian seasoning. Saute till you get a nice aroma of the herbs. Now add the baked beans and the sun-dried tomatoes. Add the water in which the tomatoes have soaked as well. Now add one finely chopped green chili. Mix well till you get a thick sauce. Lastly add the spaghetti and garnish with the green stalks of spring onion chopped fine. Serve hot with garlic bread.
