  • Add in the wine; increase heat and let the wine all but evaporate, stirring often.
  • Add in the tomatoes and 1 cup water; cover, bring to a boil; then decrease heat to maintain a gentle simmer; cook 30 minutes.
  • Puree the sauce with an immersion blender.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil; add salt and spaghetti; cook, stirring often, until al dente.
  • Drain spaghetti and transfer to a heated serving bowl into which you have ladled some of the sauce topped with a sprinkle of grated cheese.

  • The pasta should be well napped but not swimming in sauce; serve immediately.
