Add the onions, and garlic and cook until softened, 3 to 4 minutes
Add the crushed tomatoes, black pepper, water and basil and stir (if using spaghetti - add it - making sure liquid covers everything without stirring
Cover and cook medium-low heat until the water is absorbed and the pasta (if using) is cooked, about 17 minutes

I make it with zoodles and keep them raw and put the sauce on top and it's delicious
