  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Carefully drop in the tomatoes to blanch. When skins begin to split (after about 4 minutes), use a slotted spoon to transport tomatoes to a colander.
  2. When cool enough to touch, remove skin and seeds. Chop coarsely. (This gets really juicy, so be sure to work quickly and reserve the liquid.)
  3. In a large skillet over medium heat, saute garlic in olive oil until just fragrant. Stir in tomatoes, salt, pepper and basil. Adjust seasonings if desired. Heat for about 8-10 minutes.
  4. While sauce is heating, cook spaghetti according to package directions; drain.
  5. Serve spaghetti in large bowls, and generously spoon sauce over hot pasta. Top with cheese slices. Sop up juice and flavorful oil with the bread.


  1. This is a very healthy and easy to prepare meal that doesn’t sacrifice flavor. I did make one change to the recipe as I used feta cheese in place of the mozzarella. I lived in Greece for a year and developed a real taste for feta cheese, and it’s even more healthy than mozzarella. Excellent recipe, thank you!
