Ingredients

  • 3 pounds ripe tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 12 ounces spaghetti
  • 1 tablespoon butter (or vegan butter, like Earth Balance)
  • 1/2 cup torn basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese (or vegan parmesan cheese)

Instructions

  1. Slice off bottom of tomatoes and grate tomatoes over large holes of a box grater over a large bowl. Stop when you get to the core.
  2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.
  4. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds, taking care not to burn.
  5. Add the tomatoes, salt and crushed red pepper flakes. Reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer until reduced and thick, about 10-15 minutes.
  6. Add the spaghetti to the boiled water and let cook until just al dente, drain, reserving 1/2 cup of pasta cooking water.
  7. Stir in the butter to the cooked tomato sauce and season to taste, as needed.
  8. Add in the cooked pasta and cook for an additional minute. Stir in basil leaves and cheese, if using, and serve.
