This Pasta with Tomato Basil Sauce is a perfect dinner for a family. The pasta is tossed with tomatoes and accompanied by loads of fresh basil, all topped with Parmigiano Reggiano.


I love a great sauce recipe. Thanks for sharing!

— Spaghetti — Olive oil — Garlic — Onions — San Marzano tomatoes — Basil leaves


Start boiling the water and cook your pasta according to the package directions. While the pasta is cooking, prepare the sauce.


Heat the olive oil in a large, deep pan over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and onion. Cook until the onion is softened, approximately 4-5 minutes.


Add the tomatoes with all their juice. Crush the tomatoes using a potato masher or the back of a wooden spoon.


Add the basil, a good pinch of salt, several grinds of black pepper and red pepper flakes.
