    6       ea           Tomatoes
    5       ea           Garlic cloves
    1       c            Fresh basil leaves
                         Crushed red pepper flakes
      1/3   c            Olive oil
                         Salt
    1       lb           Spaghetti
 
   Peel and chop the tomatoes, being careful to conserve
   their juice. Chop very fine, or, pound in a mortar,
   the garlic, basil, red pepper, and a pinch of salt.
    Add the oil to the mortar little by little. When you
   have reduced these to a fairly smooth paste (not as
   smooth as a pesto), pour it into the tomatoes and mix
   well. Set aside for a few hours. Cook the spaghetti in
   boiling salted until al dente, drain, and place in
   serving bowl.  Add tomatoes and mix again.
