This was one of my favorite Friday night meals.
Its fast, easy and meatless.
Now I make it with spiral vegetables but I still love my pasta.
6 cloves of minced garlic
6 tablespoons olive oil
One 28 ounce can of chunky style tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Ten basil leaves
One pound of dry spaghetti
Fill a large pot with water and salt and bring to a boil
Add the pasta and cook till it is almost cooked.
Drain the pasta but save one cup of pasta water.
Heat the oil in a pan and add the minced garlic
Cook till the garlic is almost brown
Add the tomatoes and all the spices
Bring to a rolling boil then simmer for about five minutes.
Add the pasta to the pot and let the pasta absorb all the tomato sauce.
If it gets too dry add some of the pasta water.
Serve in a bowl
Sprinkle with cheese
This is a $2.00 meal that feeds four.
I have added a bag of frozen Italian vegetables to the pasta water just before the pasta is cooked.
