For the sauce: Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Blanch
the tomatoes in the boiling water for 1 minute, then transfer to a strainer
. When cool enough to handle, peel
the tomatoes and discard the skins.
Heat the olive oil in a cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Add the scallions
, red onion and cherry peppers
and saute until well caramelized, about 7 minutes. Add the garlic and saute another 2 to 3 minutes. Add the peeled tomatoes and crush
with a potato
masher. Add 1/2 cup warm water and stir in the basil
, oregano and sea salt
. Cover and simmer
for 30 minutes.
For the spaghetti: Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat and stir in the salt. Add the spaghetti
and cook to until al dente
or desired texture is achieved, about 8 minutes. Drain
and serve with a generous ladleful of the sauce and a sprinkling of Parmesan.
