$4 Spaghetti That's Almost as Good as $24 Spaghetti
This recipe has 9 ingredients. It takes 3 hours of total time, 30 minutes of which is active and makes 4 to 6 servings. I did make a few modifications to the recipe. I think I maybe one of the only food bloggers on the internet that does not own an immersion blender. Everyone I know keeps telling me that I have to buy one and that I will love it. However, I have stubbornly stuck to my blender. For this recipe I poured the tomatoes, garlic, oil and mushroom broth into the blender and pureed until smooth. Then I added it back into the pan and followed the remainder of the recipe as written. I did leave out the torn basil leaves due to the fact that I completely forget to buy them at the grocery store (opps).
My family was very impressed by this recipe. The flavor from the garlic oil and mushroom broth made for a great tasting sauce and my husband thought this maybe one of the best pasta recipes he has ever eaten. The mushroom broth creates a great undertone to the sauce and makes a delicious taste combination. I made veal meatballs to go with this pasta recipe and the combination was perfect. A great recipe that I will definitely make again.
