Spaghetti with Toasted Garlic-Tomato Sauce

To peel tomatoes, cut a shallow X in the bottom end of each one. Immerse the tomatoes in a pot of boiling water and blanch for 15 seconds. Using a slotted spoon, transfer them to a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking. Then use your fingers or a small knife to slip off the skins. To seed tomatoes, slice them in half crosswise (across the equator). Hold each half over a sink or bowl and lightly squeeze and shake it to dislodge the seeds, using your fingers if needed.

Even better with a few additions
October 28, 2012
FIrst, I made my own pasta. My husband is a fellow who turns his nose up at a sauce without meat, so I added some mild italian sausage, crumbled it, browned it, then drained it on a paper towel to soak up any grease. I didn't have the toasted garlic oil so I used EVO, crush 3 fresh cloves of garlic, and minced about 1/3-cup of fresh sweet union and let that saute to bring out their flavors, added the chile flakes and tomatoes and let that cook into a nice sauce and added the sausage. Before adding the cheese I added a little red wine after allowing the sauce simmer a bit on low. It was a wonderful addition to this sauce, and my hubby LOVED it! I'll make this again and again, I'm sure.
Pros: Easy, Adaptable, Impressive, Will Make Again
