 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2 1/2  pound         Fresh ripe tomatoes
      1/3  cup           Italian olive oil
      1/2  cup           Chopped onion
   30      milliliter    Garlic
    2      tablespoon    Chopped fresh basil
                         Salt & pepper to taste
    1 1/4  pound         Spaghetti
      3/4  cup           Parmesan cheese
   20                    Basil leaves
 
 Wash, peel & chop tomatoes, discarding seeds.  Heat oil in a moderately deep pan,
add onion & garlic and saute until onion is limp.  Discard garlic and add
tomatoes, chopped basil and salt & pepper.  Simmer for about 20 minutes over
moderate heat. While sauce is simmering, bring a large pot of water to boil.  Add
salt to taste and add spaghetti. Boil until spaghetti is “al dente,” aprox 8 to
10 minutes. Drain spaghetti, toss with the sauce and the grated cheese.
 
  Garnish each plate with some of the basil leaves.
 Serve at once.
