    Make the Sauce

    Mince garlic. Place a small pot over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil and half the garlic (reserve remaining for garlic bread) to hot pot. Cook until fragrant, 1-2 minute. Add white wine and cook 1 minute. Stir in crushed tomatoes, ½ cup water, and oregano. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook, stirring often, 8-10 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. While sauce simmers, prepare ingredients.

Bake until top is golden brown, 18-20 minutes. While pasta bakes, spread butter and remaining garlic on baguette slices. Halfway through pasta cooking time, place baguette on prepared baking sheet and bake until golden brown, 7-9 minutes.
