Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of high-quality Italian pasta
  • 1/4 cup of extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 can (28 oz) of San Marzano tomatoes, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon of dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes (optional for a spicy kick)
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Fresh basil leaves for garnish
  • Grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions:

1. Boil the pasta: Cook the Italian pasta in a large pot of salted boiling water until al dente. Drain and set aside.

2. Prepare the sauce: In a pan, heat the extra-virgin olive oil over medium heat. Add minced garlic and sauté until fragrant.

3. Simmer the tomatoes: Pour in the crushed San Marzano tomatoes, dried oregano, and red pepper flakes (if using). Season with salt and black pepper. Allow the sauce to simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

4. Combine pasta and sauce: Toss the cooked pasta into the tomato sauce, ensuring each strand is coated with the rich flavors. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes to let the pasta absorb the sauce.

5. Garnish and serve: Plate the pasta, garnish with fresh basil leaves, and sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese on top. The aroma alone will transport you to the charming streets of Italy.

6. Enjoy the perfection: Grab a fork, twirl the pasta, and savor the symphony of flavors. Each bite is a celebration of the Italian culinary tradition – a true Pasta Perfection!
