Ingredients (13)

Spaghetti

Neapolitan Sauce

Start Cooking

Prepare the Sauce

  1. Place the tomatoes in a bowl of boiling water for 5 minutes. Plunge into cold water and peel. Grate the peeled tomatoes on a fine grater.

  2. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat and sauté onion, garlic, and pepper until onion and garlic are golden.

  3. Add the carrot and sauté 2 minutes more.

  4. Add the grated tomatoes and cook about 40 minutes over low heat, stirring every few minutes. If the sauce seems too thin, add the canned tomato sauce, or continue cooking until some of the liquid cooks out.

  5. Add the basil leaves and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Prepare the Spaghetti

  1. Meanwhile, prepare the spaghetti according to package directions and divide onto plates.

  2. Pour the sauce over each portion. Sprinkle with shredded mozzarella or feta cheese, if desired.
