Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4-6 servings
  • 8 medium-large ripe tomatoes (the fresher and more flavorful, the better!)
  • 1 handful fresh basil leaves
  • 1 clove garlic (use more if desired)
  • 4 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 12 oz spaghetti or any pasta you like
  1. Bring a pot to boil and cook pasta according to package directions.
  2. While pasta is cooking, cut tomatoes into quarters and place in a blender along with the garlic, basil leaves and 2 Tbsp olive oil. Pulse until sauce has formed, but still has some texture to it (I like to leave some chunks of tomato).
  3. Taste sauce and season with salt & pepper as desired.
  4. Drain cooked pasta and return to pot. Toss with the remaining 2 Tbsp olive oil then pour all the sauce from the blender into the pot and toss to combine.
  5. Serve with grated Parmesan cheese and more chopped fresh basil leaves.
