Ingredients

  • 3 cups chopped tomatoes (fresh is best, but you can use diced canned tomatoes)
  • 1 pound whole-wheat spaghetti
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup packed fresh basil leaves, plus more for garnish, roughly torn
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Shaved Parmesan cheese, optional

Method

Step 1

Place the tomatoes, spaghetti, water, garlic, red pepper flakes, oregano and oil in a stockpot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 to 12 minutes, until the pasta is al dente, stirring occasionally. 

Step 2

Once the pasta is cooked, remove the pot from heat and stir in the basil, mozzarella and salt and pepper to taste. Serve with Parmesan if using.
