Pomodoro sauce

  • (1) 7oz can Bianco Dinappoli crushed tomatoes 
  • 8 cloves garlic, sliced 
  • 3/4 cup EVOO 
  • 1 tablespoon crushed red chili pepper

Spaghetti

  • 1 lb spaghetti noodle
  • Parmesan cheese, grated 
  • Salt

Method

Pomodoro sauce

  • In a large sauce pot, heat olive oil over medium-low heat. Add garlic and allow to toast lightly.
  • Once garlic is toasted, add crushed red chili flakes and stir, allowing to cook approximately another 30 seconds. Add crushed tomatoes, stir well.
  • Turn the heat down to low and cook for at least 30 minutes, stirring consistently to keep from burning. Turn the heat off and blend with a handheld immersion blender or transfer sauce to blender with a ladle. Blend until smooth. Add sauce back to the pot. Season with salt to taste.

Spaghetti

  • In a large pot, bring a pot of salted water to boil. Once boiling, add spaghetti and cook following the fresh or dried pasta instructions. For dried pasta, cook 10-12 minutes or until al dente and for fresh pasta, cook 2-3 minutes or until al dente.
  • Using tongs, agistate the pasta insuring that it does not stick. Once pasta is cooked through, transfer spaghetti to the sauce and let simmer at medium heat for about 1 minute and toss the pasta until sauce is fully incorporated on every noodle.
  • Season with salt to taste. Garnish with grated parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
