Ingredients

  • 12

    oz spaghetti

  • 3

    large beefsteak tomatoes (about 1 1/2 lbs), each cut into 4 thick slices

  • 3

    tbsp olive oil, plus more for the baking sheet

  • Kosher salt and black pepper

  • 8

    oz fresh mozzarella, grated

  • 1/4

    cup grated Parmesan (1 oz), plus more, shaved, for serving

  • 2

    cloves garlic, chopped

  • 1/4 to 1/2

    tsp crushed red pepper

  • 3/4

    cup torn fresh basil leaves, plus more for serving

Directions

Heat broiler. Cook pasta according to the package directions; drain and return it to the pot. Meanwhile, arrange the tomato slices in a single layer on a lightly oiled rimmed baking sheet. Season with 1/4 tsp each salt and black pepper. Dividing evenly, sprinkle the slices with the mozzarella and Parmesan. Broil until the cheese is bubbly and golden, 3 to 5 minutes. In a small saucepan, warm the oil with the garlic and red pepper over medium heat until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the garlic oil, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp black pepper to the pasta and toss to combine. Serve topped with the tomatoes, additional basil, and shaved Parmesan.
