Deglaze the pan with red wine and cook until evaporated—about two minutes.
Add in your Bianco DiNapoli Whole Peeled Tomatoes, rinsing the can with a little water to ensure no tomato juice is left behind! Then add in some of your fresh basil and simmer on low heat with the lid on for 30 to 45 minutes, stirring often. Season with salt and pepper once almost done.
Meanwhile, bring a large and heavily salted pot of water to boil before adding your pasta of choice. Cook the pasta to al dente and reserve at least 1 cup of pasta water.
Once the sauce is done, remove the onion halves and basil. Add in your butter and pasta along with the water, stirring constantly to create an emulsion.
Keep tossing the pasta until nice and glossy, adding a little more butter or pasta water as needed.
Serve your bowl topped with a healthy topping of Drizzle, basil, and grated parmesan!
