This is my favourite quick pasta recipe for when I'm home alone. I'm not much of a cook and I created this at university, so it's simple and easy to do and the ingredients are cheap and commonly found in most kitchens.

I often make this if I'm feeling a little bit under the weather as it doesn't require much effort and the tomato/garlic mixture is great for the immune system.

You don't need to add the ketchup if you don't want to, but I find it adds a bit of extra taste to the sauce.

The amounts on this page are enough for one person (two small bowls worth).


  • 100 g dried pasta (I always use penne, but any will do)
  • 1/2 a tin of hotdogs (chopped into bitesize pieces)
  • 1 tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • Dash of tomato ketchup
  • A handful of garden peas (frozen are fine)

  1. Fill a sauce pan with boiling water and add the pasta to cook according to the packet instructions.
  2. Meanwhile heat a small amount of oil in a frying pan, crush the garlic and add it to the oil. Fry until it starts to brown.
  3. Add the chopped tomatoes and hotdogs to the frying pan and heat through.
  4. When the pasta has approximately 5 minutes left, add the peas to the saucepan and continue to boil until done.
  5. Pour the pasta into a bowl and add the sauce to the top. You can add grated cheese to the top if you like.
