Ingredients:

Spaghetti – 455 grams (uncooked)

Plum tomato – 3-½ cup (blanched, peeled, without seeds & chopped)

Basil leaves – 6 (shredded)

Olive oil – ¼ cup

Extra virgin olive oil – ¼ cup

Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese – 2 tablespoon (grated)

Butter – 1 tablespoon

Cream – 2 tablespoon

Salt per taste

Ground black pepper per taste

Red pepper flakes – 1 pinch (optional)

Instructions:

  • Cook pasta in water with few drops of oil and salt till almost done. Drain and keep aside along with the drained water.
  • Blanch the tomatoes in water in a saucepan, take out and peel & remove skins. Cut halves and scoop out the seeds.
  • Heat olive oil in a large pan till it gets smoky, then add the blanched and peeled tomatoes along with salt, pepper & red chili flakes on medium heat for 5-6 minutes.
  • Take the tomatoes out of the pan and chop them finely and mash them with a masher till all liquid juice is released from them and you can see small chunks of tomatoes as well. Cook & simmer for 20-25 minutes on low heat to get a nice semi liquid & chunky effect of the sauce.
  • Now add the almost cooked and drained pasta to the pan and mix with this tomato sauce and cook till spaghetti is al-dente. If you feel that the sauce is too thick then add some of the pasta water and reach the required consistency.
  • Now finally add the butter, cheese, cream, extra virgin olive oil & basil. Mix well and check and add the seasoning if needed more per taste.
  • Transfer to a serving plate and serve hot.

Note: Delicious spaghetti is ready to be enjoyed. Bon Apatite!
