Easy Recipe For Spaghetti With Paprika

Jump to Recipe

An easy recipe for spaghetti with paprika sauce, which I’m absolutely sure that if you a spaghetti addict and paprika fan, this dish will become your favorite meal of the week!

An easy recipe, ideal for long, busy days! There is literally no preparation time, and in less than 20′ you’ll enjoy a delicious meal!

The only things that you should have are 6 basic ingredients that I’m pretty sure you already have in your cupboards. These are olive oil, garlic, salt, lightly concentrated tomato juice (or tomato sauce), and of course spaghetti and paprika!

I’m one of those who always prefer their pasta and especially spaghetti “al dente”! So, if you want to try this recipe as I really like and recommend, you should boil your spaghetti 2 minutes less than the time that the instructions on the package suggest. Doing this, we have fewer chances of overcooking our pasta while we are pouring the hot sauce into our boiled spaghetti.

Something last before I go to the recipe, which may be a piece of useful advice, is that I always make more of this food than usual! And that’s because I can’t stop eating! Maybe you do the same from the second time you’ll make this dish …or from the first time!
