Best & Easiest Pasta Recipe Ever

My mom sent me this recipe years ago. Since then, I’ve dubbed this pasta the best and easiest dish ever. What’s even better is that the sauce only requires 3 ingredients – although I tend to add a couple more if I’m feeling fancy.


See the simple tomato sauce recipe below!




  • 1 can San Marzano tomatoes
  • 1 yellow onion, quartered
  • 1 stick butter
  • Minced Garlic (to taste)
  • Brown Sugar (to taste)
  • Fresh Basil
  • 1 package pasta

Add the tomatoes (and the juices), quartered onion, butter, and garlic to large sauce pan. Cook on medium for ~30 mins, stirring occasionally. The tomatoes and onions will cook down — use the back of the spoon to squish whole tomatoes. Add your go-to seasonings and brown sugar to taste (I like my tomato sauces a touch sweet). Let the sauce simmer while you’re preparing the pasta. Once the noodles are done, mix them into the sauce one scoop at a time (depending on how saucey you like your pasta).


Top it all off with fresh basil and parmesan cheese.

Leopard Midi Skirt

What I’m Wearing:

Y.A.S. Leopard Midi Skirt, ASOS Denim Jacket (sold out, love this Levi’s one), Kenneth Cole Kam Sneakers, A.P.C. Half Moon Bag, Le Specs Echo Sunglasses




Outfit Details

This skirt is fairly loud but I can never turn down a good leopard print. Especially when it combines my 3 favorite things: ruffles, a mid-length hemline, and high-waisted rise. I’m pretty sure I used to own something similar in my college days — except it was shorter and much tighter. Looking for an update to your favorite club-worthy body-con dress circa 2008? Then this is it.

I’m wearing a size XS — it runs slightly big (I usually wear a S/4 from ASOS).

Outfit Details

I can’t believe it’s been exactly one week since I was in Maui wearing this. Since the temperatures were fairly mild, I wasn’t dying in this long-sleeve jumpsuit. The cropped length was just right and the body didn’t bunch up like some jumpsuits tend to do if they’re fitted for someone taller. I love how they styled it here with sock booties and statement earrings for a night out in the city. Fortunately for me, the playful print and flouncy sleeves also lends itself to the tropical island vibes — especially with my straw accessories. I have a difficult time with hats since my head is on the smaller side, but my face is pretty round. I like this one from Brixton because the brim is nicely proportioned in relation to my face and is straight (as opposed to curved). The quality is nice and I can see myself packing it for future warm-weather excursions.
