One-Pot Spaghetti with Fresh Tomato Sauce.fw

Prep time: 5 min

Cook time:15 min

Yield: 4 servings

Level: Easy


12 ounces spaghetti, broken in half

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon tomato paste

2 medium tomatoes, roughly chopped

Handful fresh basil leaves, plus more for garnish

4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

Large pinch crushed red pepper flakes

Kosher salt

1/2 cup grated Parmesan, plus more for serving


Put the spaghetti, oil, tomato paste, tomatoes, basil, garlic, 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 salt if needed. Divide the spaghetti among 4 bowls, and garnish with more Parmesan and torn basil leaves.
