Instructions

1
Let’s make Family Meal Spaghetti from FX’s The Bear. This is based off of scenes in the Season Finale. It’s simple and a great foundation for a sauce.
2
Peel your Garlic. I like chopping off the root end to make it easier to peel the jacket off after smashing. Then slice a large onion in half and trim.
3
Open a 28 Oz. can of tomatoes. If they aren’t crushed, blend them with an immersion blender.
4
Combine 1/2 Cup Olive Oil, 10 Cloves Garlic, 1 Tsp Red Pepper Flakes, and a 1 Oz Fresh Basil in a cold pan. Set to medium and simmer for 10 minutes. Strain.
5
To a large saucepan on medium heat add 4 Tbsp Butter, 1 Halved Large Onion and 1 Tbsp Salt. Once browned, add 28 Oz. San Marzano Tomatoes (Crushed). Reduce.
6
After simmering for 30 minutes, add your infused oil. Mix well, and remove Onions. Continue reducing until it thickens.
7
Bring a pot of water to boil. Salt it generously. Add 8 Oz Spaghetti and cook just under the package directions. Around 8 minutes.
8
Add your drained pasta directly to your sauce and mix thoroughly. Add a little of the pasta water to help thicken the sauce further.
9
Plate and top with leftover Basil leaves and Parmesan Cheese (Grated) if you want.
