  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves sliced thin on a mandolin
  • 1 shallot halved and sliced in half moons
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes with sauce
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flake
  • ½ cup fresh cut basil
  • 8- ounce package black bean spaghetti


  • Set water to bowl in a large sauce pot.  Once water comes to a rapid bowl, add pasta and cook 7 to 8 minutes until al dente.¹
  • Using a mandolin, or carefully with a knife, slice garlic cloves thinly.
  • Heat olive oil in a sauté pan over medium high heat, add garlic and sauté 1 to 2 minutes until slightly translucent.  Add shallots to the pan and cook an additional 2 minutes, stirring frequently so the garlic doesn't burn.
  • Carefully pour white wine into the pan.  Add canned diced tomatoes with sauce, salt, red pepper, and fresh basil to the pan.  Let simmer for 5 minutes on high until reduced.
  • Drain pasta well and sauté pasta with the sauce.


¹If pasta is done before the sauce is complete, drain and let sit in the colander.  Run hot water over the spaghetti before adding to the sauce.
