How to Make It

  1. Coat a large saucepan with cooking spray. Add oil, and place over medium-high heat until hot. Add onion and garlic; cook, stirring constantly, 4 minutes or until tender. Add tomatoes and next 3 ingredients. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low, and simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  2. While sauce simmers, cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain.

  3. To serve, place 1 cup pasta on each of 6 individual serving plates. Top each serving with 1/2 cup sauce, and sprinkle servings evenly with cheese.

Cook's Notes

TIME-saverUse frozen chopped onion and 2 teaspoons minced garlic from a jar instead of the fresh versions of both ingredients.
