|Tips||Using a food processor to prepare the vegetables allows them to cook faster and saves preparation time. If you don't have a food processor, grate the onion and garlic on a box grater.|
Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Meanwhile, pulse onion and garlic in food processor until very finely chopped; remove and reserve. Pulse the tomatoes in the same food processor until smooth.
Heat oil in a large, non-stick skillet set over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook for 5 minutes or until softened. Add tomatoes. Bring to a boil and simmer for 8 minutes or until heated though. Stir in basil; season with salt and pepper (adjust to taste). Serve over spaghetti.
