Echo's Quick and Easy Pasta


1 pound pasta (use your favorite kind) 

Kosher salt

1/2 cup olive oil

2 large garlic cloves, finely chopped

3 pints cherry or plum tomatoes 

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Pinch of sugar

1 cup coarsely chopped fresh basil

Freshly grated Parmesan (for serving)

You can add meat or any other veggies you might want with this dish. 


1. Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water, stirring occasionally, until al dente; drain and transfer to a large bowl.

2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a 12" skillet or wide heavy saucepan over medium-high. Add garlic, then tomatoes, pepper, sugar, and 1 tsp. salt. Cook, stirring occasionally until tomatoes burst and release their juices to form a sauce, 6–8 minutes.

3. Toss pasta with tomato sauce and basil. Top with Parmesan.
