The first thing you do while making pasta with a fresh tomato sauce is: Tomatoes can be easily peeled by placing them in a pot of hot water. Tomatoes should be blanched in boiling water for 10 to 30 seconds, at which point they should be removed, allowed to cool, and then placed in ice water. With this method, peeling tomatoes is a breeze. As soon as the tomatoes have cooled enough to be held in your hands, cut them into 1-centimeter cubes and use a paring knife to remove the seeds. Cooking fresh tomato sauce for pasta is a two-step process. Half of the water should be poured into a large, handle-equipped pot, and then placed on high gas heat. When the water boils, add roughly a teaspoon of salt to it. Mix the pasta with a long-handled fork in the boiling water. Set the flame to medium. Stir the spaghetti periodically so that it does not clump together and cook. Do not cover the pasta water after it has been added to the pot; doing so will make the pasta doughy. The spaghetti will be ready to eat after eight to ten minutes. Toss some oil into the pasta water. Finally, the fresh tomato sauce is added to the spaghetti. In a medium skillet, heat the oil while the pasta is cooking. Heat the oil in the pot over medium heat. As long as the oil is heating. Take the garlic and peel it, then shred it with the fine side of the grater. Now add the grated garlic to the heated oil and whisk. Let it stay for 30 seconds and fry. A wooden spoon stirs the garlic at regular intervals. Watch out that the garlic doesn't go too brown. Now mix in the chopped tomatoes and stir in the garlic. Stir in the salt and pepper after a minute. The sauce needs roughly three minutes of cooking time. Don't worry about the sauce sticking together; just mix it occasionally. To finish off the pasta and fresh tomato sauce: After cooking pasta, transfer it to a colander and run cold water over it to stop the cooking process.
