Step 1

Cook Pasta: Bring an expansive pot of salted water to a bubble. Cook the pasta according to the steps on the packet. Drain and set aside, saving a bit of pasta cooking water.

Step 2

Prepare Tomato Basil Sauce: In a massive skillet, warm olive oil over medium heat. Add minced garlic to the skillet and sauté for 1-2 minutes until aromatic. Include diced tomatoes in the skillet and cook, mixing occasionally, for 5-7 minutes till the tomatoes secrete their juices. Sprinkle with salt and pepper according to your taste.

Step 3

Combine Pasta and Sauce: Pour the cooked pasta into the skillet with the tomato basil sauce. Mix well to coat the pasta equally with the sauce. If the sauce appears to be too dry, sprinkle it with reserved pasta cooking water to loosen it up.

Step 4

Include New Basil: Remove the skillet from the flame and Include a small amount of freshly cut basil in the spaghetti. Stir carefully to blend the basil into the pasta.

Step 5

Serve: Divide the Easy Tomato Basil Pasta among the serving plates. Serve immediately, garnished with ground Parmesan cheese if desired.
