Don Cameron's Fresh Tomato Sauce Spaghetti

Author Notes:

“We really miss those tomatoes at this time of the year," says Don of fall and winter. "We have to buy them in the store, [and they have] much less flavor.”


Makes: 1 pound of pasta

  • 4 tablespoons California Olive Ranch extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 large onion (approximately 1 cup chopped)
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 5 cups chopped fresh roma tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 fresh basil leaves (4 chopped for the sauce; 2 for garnish)
  • 1 pound spaghetti
  • Parmesan, grated, for serving
  1. In a skillet, heat olive oil and add onions and garlic. Sauté until tender and golden brown.
  2. Add tomatoes (Don leaves the skin on the tomatoes), seasonings, and 4 of the chopped basil leaves, and simmer for 30 minutes.
  3. Cook the spaghetti until al dente. Serve the sauce over the pasta and sprinkle with the grated Parmesan cheese and remaining fresh basil. Enjoy!
