directions

  • 1

    Bring 4 quarts of water to boil in a large pot. Add salt and stir in the spaghetti. Cook until tender but still firm. Drain immediately when done and transfer to 4 heated plates.

  • 2

    While spaghetti is cooking, drain the tomatoes, cut them crosswise into halves, and squeeze out as much liquid as possible.

  • 3

    Combine tomatoes and olive oil in a skillet and bring to a boil. Keep the sauce at a full boil and add remaining ingredients except pasta, one at a time, stirring frequently.

  • 4

    Reduce the heat slightly and continue to cook for a few minutes, or until the sauce has thickened to your liking. Serve immediately over hot pasta and garnish with additional chopped parsley.
