  1. Step 1

    Heat 2 tbsp of the olive oil in a shallow pan and sizzle the garlic and dried chilli, if using, over a medium heat for 2 mins. Sprinkle in the sugar, splash in the vinegar, then tip in the tomatoes. Add the oregano, season with salt and simmer for 25-30 mins, stirring occasionally until thickened. Will keep chilled for up to two days or frozen for three months. Leave to cool completely first.
  2. Step 2

    To serve, cook the spaghetti following pack instructions, then drain and tip back into the saucepan. Pour over the sauce, remove the whole chilli and toss everything together over a low heat for a minute or two. Turn off the heat and toss through the remaining olive oil and the parmesan, if using.
