  • 1 8 oz package Vermacelli Pasta you can substitute thin spaghetti or angel hair
  • 1 Tbsp Minced Garlic
  • 1 Small White Onion chopped
  • 3 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 7.4 oz Tomato Sauce
  • 2 32 oz Broth I used vegetable but you can sub any
  • 3 Bay Leaves


  • If you're using a long cut pasta (like spaghetti), break up into small 2 inch pieces before tossing into a large pot with 3 tbsp of olive oil. Allow to cook until some pieces look toasted. Add minced garlic and onion and toast for a few more minutes, stirring constantly to prevent burning.
  • Add the remaining ingredients to the noodles and cook for 15 minutes. Add more broth or water if you like your Fideo to be more soupier (like in my pictures!)
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
