  • 3 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 3 tablespoons Tomato Paste
  • 1 tablespoon Garlic (chopped)
  • 1 cup White Onion (sliced)

Haitian Spaghetti recipe

Boil pasta according to package. Reserve 1 1/2 cups of the pasta water for later use.

In a heavy large saucepan, heat oil and add tomato sauce or ketchup. (if using ketchup add 1 additional tablespoon)  Cook tomato paste for 3 – 4 minutes while stirring occasionally.  Add garlic, onion, thyme and sausage and cook for 4 minutes while stirring to blend. Add chicken bouillon and stir.  Add pasta and stir to blend while gradually adding the pasta water.  Lower heat and cover and cook for another 4-5 minutes.  Add crushed red pepper if using.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve hot.

  • Thanks for sharing this fantastic recipe! It looks amazing but I think I would like to add tomato puree instead of the tomato paste, as I prefer a more liquid texture of the sauce to go with a spaghetti dish.
