LOS ANGELES, Dec. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Season's Greetings from the Land of Tomatoes! We all can use a little extra love right now, red as our own hearts and red as our own tomatoes! Tis the season to be giving, let the Greatest Tomatoes from Europe share a simple and delicious Authentic Marinara Sauce with you to excite your family and friends this holiday season.
While we're on the subject of giving, The Greatest Tomatoes from Europe Team is thrilled to be donating 2,250 pounds of our delicious European Canned Tomatoes to help Chef Bruno Serato https://www.instagram.com/serato7/ and https://www.instagram.com/caterinas_club/ This local charity regularly feeds more than 25,000 children affected by food insecurity each week across Southern California.

Authentic Spaghetti with Homemade Marinara Sauce.
Time: About 10 minutes
Level of Difficulty: Easy
1 28 oz can European whole peeled tomatoes
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic, chopped
Pinch of red chile flakes
Salt as desired
12 oz spaghetti
1 tablespoon chopped Italian parsley, plus extra to garnish
Pinch dried oregano
Puree tomatoes, feel free to use your hands for a proper "nonna", or grandmother chunky sauce.
Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat with the garlic and chile flakes. As the garlic begins to turn golden, add the pureed tomatoes.
Lower the temperature, add a pinch of salt and simmer for 5 minutes, set aside while you cook your pasta in a large pot of rapidly boiling salted water, until it is al dente. Drain and save some of the cooking water.
Return sauce to the heat, add parsley, basil and a spoonful of the pasta water; cook over medium heat for another 5 minutes while stirring.
Add the drained pasta to your sauce, sprinkle in a pinch of oregano and toss together over the heat.
Plate your pasta and garnish with the extra parsley and basil.
Enjoy-- it's from Europe!
