Sophia Loren was quoted as saying, “Spaghetti can be eaten most successfully if you inhale it like a vacuum cleaner.” I couldn’t agree more; especially when the pasta is as delicious as this recipe for SPAGHETTI WITH RAW TOMATO SAUCE. This is one of my favorite summer “go to” recipes. Since the tomatoes aren’t cooked, the recipe relies on them to be the freshest and ripest you could find.
It best to make this recipe when tomatoes are at their peak when they’re juicer and sweeter. This recipe is a perfect way to highlight tomatoes natural flavor. I simply dice and marinade the tomatoes with good quality, fruity, extra virgin olive oil, garlic cloves, basil, and salt. I like to prepare the tomatoes in the morning and have it sit all day. The longer the tomatoes sit, the better the flavor will be. When dinnertime rolls around, all you have to do is toss the sauce with cooked spaghetti and twirl away.
