How to Make Easy Spaghetti
1Put olive oil in a skillet that about 12" wide.
3Add to skillet and cook on medium heat as you peel and mince garlic.
4Add garlic to skillet; stir.
5Cook several more minutes to allow the vegetables to soften and give up a lot of their moisture.
6Stir occasionally and add oregano, basil, red pepper and crushed tomatoes.
7Simmer the mixture uncovered.
8Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil for your spaghetti.
9Salt the water and add 8-12 ounces of spaghetti.
10Cook until it is just barely tender, probably 2 minutes less than they suggest on the package.
12Toss with sauce and serve on plates, top with freshly grated parmesan cheese.
