Party Food: Lazy Fish Pasta

So we all go through days when we don't really feel like cooking anything, and then our friends call us up for an impromptu house party. what are you to do? Easy. Prepare some Lazy Fish Pasta. If this dish isn't easy enough for you, I don't klnow what is.

Ingredients: any type of pasta, butter (or oil), tomato sauce, sugar, salt, pepper, canned fish (I used Bangus or milk fish for this one), Herbs and Spices, Cheese

Prepare your ingredients and begin. (note that this is for Lazy people. you dont even need garlic or onion)

Cook pasta as directed in the package. While waiting for your pasta to cook, yopu may begin with your sauce.
Melt some butter in a saucepan
Open your canned fish, and drain all the liquid out. Dump the pieces of fish in your saucepan and crumble to make flakes. For this recipe I used canned Bangus (or milkfish) but you may use any type of canned fish (e.g. tuna, salmon, or even sardines)

Pour in some tomato sauce. Season with salt, pepper and sugar (i use brown sugar). I think sugar is an important ingredient to balance out the tartness/sourness of the tomato sauce
Add in some herbs! I put some Rosemary, Basil and Oregano, but you could put in anything you want, or have at hand. Try BAy leaves, Paprika, or maybe even Curry.
Dump in some grated cheese. it doesn't have to be quick-melting cheese. Just grate it and dump it in the sauce until it melts and makes a thicker sauce.
When your pasta is ready, dump it into your boiling sauce. I know your Mommy always turned off the heat and added the Sauce to your Pasta in a bowl, but i find that THIS technique makes the sauce bind better to the pasta.
And there you are! Easy as pie!

Serve this on your next impromptu house party, and make your guests think you've slaved for hours on this one!
