Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Cook onions and garlic in oil until soft. Stir in tomato purée, tomatoes, salt, pepper, basil and water. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 20 minutes, until thickened.
While sauce is simmering, cook pasta according to package instructions; drain. Toss sauce with hot pasta.
The sauce is wounderful and my son loved it. But one draw back the suace was not enough for one packet of spagetti. I would change to recipe to have double the liquid portion of the recipe. - 15 Sep 2008
