Essential Pasta Pomodoro

Serves 4
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 28-ounce can whole tomatoes, pureed
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 pound spaghetti
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • Basil, for garnish
Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and sauté for about 10 minutes; then add minced garlic and continue stirring for 2 minutes. Add pureed tomatoes and season with salt and pepper.

Lower heat and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, cook pasta in salted boiling water until just before tender. Drain and reserve 1/2 cup cooking water.
