    Spaghetti with mushrooms and garlic

    One of my favourites, and - *gasp* - no meat. Serves about 4.

    Ingredients
    * 2 medium cans of chopped plum tomatoes
    * Some good extra virgin olive oil
    * A nice bay leaf
    * A teaspoonful of sugar
    * A big handful of nice mushrooms, sliced up (I like shiitake)
    * Two big garlic cloves, chopped finely
    * A handful of pitted black olives, sliced in two
    * A small bunch of marjoram or oregano, leaves only, chopped
    * Freshly crushed black pepper
    * Some nice sea salt
    * A big knob of butter
    * Spaghetti for four

    Method
    * Heat a heavy-bottomed saucepan and add a good glug of olive oil

    * Add the bay leaf, the chopped tomatoes and the sugar

    * When it comes to the boil, put a lid on it, turn the heat way down low and leave it for 30 minutes, checking occasionally that it isn't sticking

    * Add all the other ingredients (garlic, musrooms, olives, herbs, salt and pepper to taste) and simmer covered for another 20 minutes

    * Cook the spaghetti until al dente, strain, add butter and pepper and shake it all about to coat the spag

    * Plonk the spaghetti onto the plates and ladle the sauce on top

    * Serve with crusty buttered bread

    Brilliant!
