This is wonderful with garden fresh tomatoes.

I used a little less olive oil, a 28 oz. can of whole tomatoes, dried basil and added a chopped onion which I sauteed with the garlic. I also stirred some grated Parmesan into the pasta before serving. This is really tasty and easy to make and it makes A LOT! I look forward to at least one more dinner from this and maybe lunch one day as well!
