How to Make Easy Spaghetti


  1. Put olive oil in a skillet that about 12" wide.
  2. Peel and chop onion.
  3. Add to skillet and cook on medium heat as you peel and mince garlic.
  4. Add garlic to skillet; stir.
  5. Cook several more minutes to allow the vegetables to soften and give up a lot of their moisture.
  6. Stir occasionally and add oregano, basil, red pepper and crushed tomatoes.
  7. Simmer the mixture uncovered.
  8. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil for your spaghetti.
  9. Salt the water and add 8-12 ounces of spaghetti.

  11. Drain but don't rinse.
  12. Toss with sauce and serve on plates, top with freshly grated parmesan cheese.
