Ingredients

  • 3

    Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 4

    cloves garlic, very thinly sliced

  • Kosher salt

  • Pinch crushed red pepper flakes

  • One

    28-ounce can San Marzano plum tomatoes, crushed by hand

  • 1

    cup torn basil leaves

  • 12

    ounces spaghetti

  • Grated Parmesan, optional

Directions

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the oil, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper flakes in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring, until the oil heats up and the garlic just starts to turn golden, 4 to 6 minutes. Add the tomatoes; rinse the can with about 1 cup of water, and add the water to the skillet. Add the basil, raise the heat to medium-high and simmer until the sauce thickens, 15 to 20 minutes. Meanwhile, add the spaghetti to the boiling water, and cook according to package directions; strain well. Add the cooked spaghetti to the sauce, and stir to coat. Serve with Parmesan if desired.
