  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 onions
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 0.5 tbsp sugar
  • 100 ml water
  • 150 g creme fraiche
  • salt & pepper
  • 180 g spaghetti


  • Cook the spaghetti in a large bowl with one-liter boiling water and half a teaspoon of salt until al dente. This takes about 9-12 minutes -> Have a look at the label of the spaghetti package to know the exact time.
  • Meanwhile, peel the garlic cloves and onion and cut them into thin slices.
  • Preheat a nonstick frying pan with two tablespoon olive oil and roast the sliced garlic and onion for 3 minutes over medium heat.
  • Cut the tomatoes into small cubes and add them to the pan. Cook for another 1 minute, then add a half tablespoon of sugar and caramelize it for 2 minutes.
  • Add the water and creme fraiche to the pan and cook until the spaghetti is al dente. Season it with salt and pepper.
  • When your spaghetti is al dente, drain them and add them to the sauce.
  • Cook the spaghetti with the sauce together for another minute, this helps that the sauce will stick on the spaghetti.


I always keep a bit of the pasta water left when I drain them so that I can add a bit of it to my sauce when it gets too dry. Serve your spaghetti with some parmesan.
