Pasta and toast

This is a dish my husband has perfected. It is easy, delicious and uses a minimal amount of dishes.

spaghetti or other pasta - fettuccine, etc
onion, chopped
garlic, chopped
dried basil
dried oregano
red pepper flakes
Muir Glen Pizza sauce

Cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain and leave in the strainer. In the same pan that you used to cook the pasta, melt some olive oil and butter like substitute over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until brown and softened. Add the basil, oregano, red pepper flakes, and sauce and stir to combine. Add the pasta back to the party. Serve with fresh basil and toasted bread.

We both really like this, a lot. And slowly, my husband has ramped up the red pepper flakes to the point where my mouth burns for a while after eating. It is great.
