Put the water for the pasta to boil.
Combine the tomatoes with the garlic, basil leaves, oil and salt and marinate while cooking the pasta.
Cook the pasta al dente and once it’s strained, let some fresh water run on top to stop cooking.
Strain the pasta again and put it in a bowl with the tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, basil and salt to taste.
Mix and serve with some red pepper flakes and cheese.
