Cook pasta according to package directions.
In a large saute pan, add olive oil and garlic. Saute for a few minutes, then add in canned tomatoes.
Cook tomatoes/garlic on medium until pasta is finished. This will soften the tomatoes, they will break apart a bit more, and the flavors will blend.
If the tomato/garlic liquid starts to evaporate, add in about 1/4-1/2 cup of your pasta water. This will give you more sauce and also thicken the sauce (from the pasta starch).
When pasta is finished, drain (reserve a bit of the cooking liquid), and add drained pasta to tomato sauce pan.
If needed add a little more pasta water.
Stir in basil.
Transfer to serving bowl and top with parmesan cheese.
