To make this pasta, you will need: Pasta – you can use any type of pasta that you like but I usually go for whole wheat pasta as it's healthier. Choose short pasta shapes such as penne or fusilli. Extra virgin olive oil – I normally use olive oil for the taste that it gives, but if you would like to keep this oil-free then saute the onion and the garlic. Pour in the tomato sauce, add sugar, salt and pepper to taste and stir. Cook the pasta according to the package directions.
