Okay, first things first. Grab those shiniest baubles from your pantry – ripe, juicy tomatoes, a handful of fragrant basil, a pack of trusty spaghetti, and a hunk of good old parmigiano-reggiano.

Willy-nilly, the timer starts now. Boil a pot o’ water hotter than a two-dollar pistol. Dump your spaghetti in, and let it dance around for about eight minutes. While that spaghetti is busting some moves, blitz those ripe tomatoes in a blender until smoother than a hound’s tooth.

Next, let’s bring that tomato puree to the pan with a glug of olive oil, simmering it till it’s as rich as Croesus. Shower your sauce with a generous shake of salt, and pepper, along with a good crack of fresh basil. Then, just as all the planets align, the spaghetti will be cooked, drained, and ready to meet its match with that velvety tomato goodness.
