Directions:

STEP 1

Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Add the shallot and cook, stirring occasionally, until the shallot is browned and soft.

STEP 2

Add a half spoon of hot water and salt. Stir in the puréed tomatoes (pomodoro, in Italian). Cook the sauce for approx. 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Once the sauce has thickened, stir in the fresh basil.

STEP 3

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, cook the pasta “al dente”, which means that the pasta should be tender but still firm to the bite.

STEP 4

Add the spaghetti to the pomodoro sauce in the skillet, add some extra virgin olive oil and 1 spoon of grated Parmigiano Reggiano. Stir until the sauce coats the spaghetti, we call this ”legatura”, meaning the pasta bonds with the sauce. Plate the spaghetti like as a nest at the center of the plate. As a finishing touch, garnish with basil leaves and finely shaved Parmigiano Reggiano. Buon appetito!
