Step 1

Place the oil in a skillet over low heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until golden, about 6 to 7 minutes.

Add the tomatoes, sugar, salt and pepper; raise heat to medium and cook, gently smashing some of the tomatoes with the back of a spoon (leave some whole), until the sauce is thickened, about 8 minutes. Stir in the basil.

Add the pasta, combine well and serve immediately, topped with grated cheese.
