Boil water in a pot (half full), add half spoon of salt. Just when it begins to boil, toss the spaghetti into the pot without broke their. They slowly go below the water level. Bake for about 8 minutes from the resumption of boiling, stirring occasionally. Remove the pot from heat and drain spaghetti in a colander (you must drain all the water). Then put the spaghetti in the empty pot, to fire off, and add the tomato sauce you have before prepared. Stir quickly and immediately serve it with two leaves of basil or a handful of parmesan cheese (grated cheese). Buon appetito!
