Recipe Ingredients for Spaghetti with Ginger Tomato Sauce

3 tablespoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes, or to taste
2 cups chopped fresh tomatoes
2 tablespoons raw ginger root
12 ounces Spaghetti
10 fresh basil leaves, chopped
1 salt and pepper to taste

Recipe Directions for Spaghetti with Ginger Tomato Sauce

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Cook the pasta until al dente, then drain, reserving some pasta cooking water.

  2. In a large (12-inch) skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat until shimmering. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes and cook briefly until fragrant. Add ginger and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.

  3. Add the tomatoes to the pan and gently crush them with a wooden spoon. Once boiling, turn the heat to a simmer and cook until the tomatoes are just broken down enough and the juices have thickened, 10-15 minutes.

  4. Season the sauce with salt and pepper. Toss the spaghetti with the sauce and basil leaves, adding a little pasta water if necessary to create the right consistency. Serve immediately.
