4 Servings 15 min Cook
12 Oz Spaghetti
3 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Tomato Paste
4 Cloves, minced Garlic
2 Medium whole (2-3/5" dia) Tomatoes
12 Leaf, whole Basil
1 Tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
1 Dash Salt
8 Tbsp Parmesan Cheese
Put the spaghetti, oil, tomato paste, garlic, tomatoes, basil, red pepper flakes and 1 teaspoon salt in a high-sided medium skillet.
Add 5 cups water, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
Continue to cook, stirring the spaghetti frequently to keep it from clumping, until it is al dente and the sauce has reduced and thickened, 6 to 8 minutes.
Stir in the Parmesan (the sauce will thicken more), and season with additional salt if needed.
Garnish spaghetti with more Parmesan and torn basil leaves.
