Put olive oil in a skillet that about 12" wide.

Peel and chop onion. Add to skillet and cook on medium heat as you
peel and mince garlic. Add garlic to skillet; stir. Cook several more
minutes to allow the vegetables to soften and give up a lot of their
moisture. Stir occasionally. Add oregano, basil, red pepper and
crushed tomatoes. Simmer the mixture uncovered.

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil for your spaghetti,
usually 4 1.2 quarts or so. Salt the water and add 8-12 ounces of
spaghetti. Cook until it is just barely tender, probably 2 minutes
less than they suggest on the package. Drain but don't rinse.

Toss with sauce and serve on plates. top with freshly grated Parmesan

NOTE: Carrot sticks and warmed bread go well with spaghetti.
