This is one of my favorites:

Spaghetti alla Putanesca
Prep: 15 minutes; Total: 15 minutes
Servings: Makes 4 servings
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
4 large garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 28.2-ounce can peeled tomatoes in puree with basil
1/2 cup Kalamata olives, halved, pitted
3 anchovy fillets, chopped
1 1/2 tablespoons drained capers
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
3/4 pound spaghetti
2 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley
Grated Parmesan cheese
Heat oil in large pot over medium heat. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add tomatoes with puree, olives, anchovies, capers, oregano, and crushed red pepper. Simmer sauce over medium-low heat until thickened, breaking up tomatoes with spoon, about 8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Meanwhile, cook pasta in large pot of boiling salted water until tender but still firm to bite. Drain pasta; return to same pot. Add sauce and parsley. Toss over low heat until sauce coats pasta, about 3 minutes. Serve with cheese.

Dear Chef,

Thanks for your reply. I got Tomato sauce, white sauce and your Spaghetti alla Putanesca sauce recipes . Now , Can you give me some more sauce recipes to serve with Pasta which is CHEAP and easy to make ? As , in our country Bangladesh, Chesse is littile bit expensive. Also Caper, Oregano ,Italian parsley,anchovy, Kalamata Olives will not be available . Can you help me with ingredients available in SOUTH-EAST Asian Countries ?

One more question : I can not differenciate What is Pasta and What is Spaghetti ? Do they are the same thing ? Is the Pasta is only Italian Pasta Or there is also another Pasta ?

Will be waiting for any kind of your advice.

Firstly, spaghetti is pasta. There are many shapes of pasta, linguine, fettuccine, penne, mostaccoli, etc.

You can leave out the alcohol or if you want to de-glaze, use chicken or beef broth.

A very simple, inexpensive pasta sauce:

Smash a few cloves of garlic, add them to a little bit of olive oil in a pan along with some whole dried chilies. Add as many as you like, smash them if you want hotter sauce. When the garlic gets a light golden color, remove it and discard it. Let the chilies get quite dark and then remove and discard them. Add canned crushed tomatoes to the pan, (Watch out for splattering). Add salt to taste and 1/2- 1 tsp sugar if your tomatoes are too acidic. Let simmer for about 15-20 minutes. If you find cheese too expensive, brown some fine bread crumbs in a little oil until golden brown and use them to sprinkle on the sauced pasta instead of cheese.

I hope this helps.

Italian pasta sauces free the best affectionate of tomatoes for authoritative sauces, which is of advance the diced tomatoes arranged in water, not borsch are best. When authoritative “pesto” best is to batter the leaves to absolution the oil, flinch the garlic, and acknowledgment the ache nuts. The ambit of Italian sauces goes able-bodied far from simple chrism sauces.
