INGREDIENTS:

– 250g of spaghetti

– 6 ripe red tomatoes

– 2 onions

– 2 cloves of garlic

– 5 basil leaves

– 3 tablespoons of olive oil

– Salt and pepper to taste

– 100g of mozzarella cheese

DIRECTIONS:

To prepare the sauce, bring a pot of water to a boil. Make a cross on the tomatoes with a knife and boil them for about 5 minutes. Transfer them to cold water to peel them easily. Put the peeled tomatoes in a blender to make a perfect tomato sauce.

In a frying pan with a little oil over low heat, add finely chopped onions and garlic. Once they are soft, add the tomatoes.

Peel and chop the onions finely, or you can grate them for better integration into the sauce. Peel and chop the garlic. Add them to the frying pan. When they are soft, add the tomatoes.

Adjust the flavors with the necessary salt and pepper. The tomatoes will take about 20 minutes over low heat to create a perfect sauce.

While the tomato is cooking, prepare the pasta. Italian pasta works well with this type of sauce, but any pasta will be perfect. Depending on the type of pasta, it will take more or less time to cook, usually around 7 minutes.

Drain the spaghetti and pour the Napolitan sauce on top. Add the mozzarella cheese in pieces.

Decorate with fresh basil leaves and plenty of grated Parmesan or any other topping of your choice.

Enjoy your meal!
