It is often said that people eat convenience food because they don’t have the time to cook anything. Well, this took me about 15 minutes to make from start to serving.
First, I added three cloves of finely chopped garlic to two tablespoons of olive oil in a pan. This was then heated so that the garlic began to sizzle without burning while I boiled a kettle of water for the pasta and opened a tin of chopped tomatoes.
While the pasta was cooking, I added the tomatoes to the garlic and oil, stirred and seasoned them and let them simmer. Then, I chopped up a handful of basil leaves. When the pasta was cooked, I drained it and added it to the sauce, along with the basil. Once it was nicely coated in sauce, I served it, topped with freshly-grated parmesan cheese.
