An abundance of canned tomatoes goes for a long-slow simmer with olive oil, garlic, bay leaves and fresh basil, while a large dose of red pepper flakes gives this sauce its fiery character. Stir in penne and serve up hot.
Tired of tuna salad? Then try salmon instead. The dressing is delicious and a bit different from your typical tuna fare. Yogurt, chopped celery, capers are combined and folded into the salmon. Serve on a bed of shredded lettuce. Serves four.
Lentils, rice and pasta are cooked and then served in a spicy tomato sauce. This is a typical Egyptian dish that is very good and cheap over here! Puree the sauce in a food processor if you like a smoother texture.
