Ingredients

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 pound spaghetti

One 32-ounce can whole peeled plum tomatoes

3 garlic cloves

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Grated Parmesan, for serving

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the spaghetti and cook according to package directions and then drain.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, puree the tomatoes with their juice in a blender with the garlic cloves, 1 teaspoon salt, and a few grinds of pepper.
  3. Heat the oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Careful of it splashing, pour the tomato puree into the hot oil and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Add the cooked pasta to the sauce and toss until coated. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with grated Parmesan.
