Step 1

1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and saute until golden brown, 2 minutes.

2. Add tomatoes. Simmer over very low heat for 30 minutes, adding water by the 1/4 cup to keep sauce from becoming too thick (you can use leftover pasta water).

3. Season with salt and pepper and reserve.

4. Cook pasta in a large pot of heavily salted boiling water according to package instructions; reserve 1 cup pasta cooking water.

5. Add pasta to reserved tomato sauce in saucepan and finish cooking pasta, 2 to 3 minutes, adding 1/4 pasta water to moisten if necessary.

6. Divide among 4 plates and garnish with basil leaves and grated cheese.
