Homemade Spaghetti

I love spaghetti, but I have never really been a fan of the canned spaghetti sauce and making your own sauce can get really complicated and take a long time. But I have figured out a recipe that is not only delicious but also simple and quick. This recipe is for two but can be halved for one. Here is what you will need.

Olive Oil

4 Chopped Tomatoes

4 Chopped Green onions

3 Crushed Garlic Cloves

1 Tablespoons of dried Basil

2 Teaspoons of Garlic Salt

1 Teaspoon of Red Pepper

1 Teaspoon of Black Pepper

1 Teaspoon of Salt

Parmigiana (for sprinkling)

Begin boiling water. When the water is boiling put in the spaghetti noodles and about a tablespoon of salt.

Line the bottom of a frying pan with olive oil and put your burner on medium high heat. Wait till you can feel the heat coming off the pan with your hand hovering above it. Then put the garlic and the chopped green onion in the pan. Let it saute until the garlic is slightly browned and the onions are getting soft, about three to four minutes. Add the chopped tomatoes and stir to mix them with the onions and the garlic. Cook for about four minutes.

Add in all the spices one at a time and then stir. If needed you may increase any of the spices to what you like. Let the sauce cook for about 7 minutes. When the spaghetti is done (it should be just past al dente) drain the water and leave the spaghetti in the pan. Pour the sauce into the pan with the spaghetti and mix it until the sauce is clinging to all of the noodles. Then plate and sprinkle the parmigiana on top and enjoy!
