2 1/2 pounds ripe tomatoes
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 med onion, finely chopped
4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 tsp dried or 1Tbsp fresh thyme leaves
1 oregano sprig
Pinch chili flakes / 1/8 tsp powder
1 teaspoon sugar
1 pound dried angel hair pasta
1/2 cup grated Parmesan, (1/4 in sauce + 1/4 cup for garnish~can use less to cut down on calories)
1/4 cup chiffonade basil, plus whole sprigs for garnish
Heat a large saute pan over medium high heat. Add the olive oil and heat. When the oil is hot, add the onions and garlic and saute for 2 minutes. Add the thyme leaves, oregano sprig, and chili flakes and saute until the garlic begins to turn golden brown. Add the tomatoes and the sugar and stir well. Lower the heat and cook slowly until the mixture is fairly dry, about 15-25 minutes.
Cook the angel hair pasta in boiling, salted water until al dente. Drain the pasta and add it to the sauce. Add the 1/4 cup Parmesan and basil and toss well. Place in a large pasta bowl and garnish with Parmesan and basil sprigs.
