    Cook and drain pasta as directed on package.
  • 2
    While pasta is cooking, heat oil in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Cook garlic in oil 30 seconds, stirring frequently. Stir in tomatoes. Cook 5 to 8 minutes, stirring frequently, until tomatoes are soft and sauce is slightly thickened. Stir in basil, salt and pepper. Cook 1 minute. Serve sauce over pasta.

Expert Tips

  • Roma—or plum—tomatoes are often preferred for sauces because they have fewer seeds and firmer flesh than regular slicing tomatoes.
  • Slice 1 or 2 fully cooked Italian sausages, and cook with the garlic for a heartier meal.
