DIRECTIONS

  • Bring 6 quarts of water to a boil in a large pot, and add 3 tablespoons kosher salt.
  • Meanwhile, put 4 tablespoons olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the tomato paste and pepper flakes. Reduce the heat to low and stir just until fragrant, about 4 minutes.
  • Stir in the tomatoes, and remove from the heat.
  • Drop the pasta into the boiling water, and cook until al dente. Drain the pasta, reserving 1/4 cup of the pasta water.
  • Add the pasta and the reserved pasta water to the tomato sauce, stir and toss over medium heat until the pasta is well coated.
  • Season with salt if necessary, then add 4 tablespoons olive oil, tossing well.
  • Serve immediately, with freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese on the side.
