6 servings (serving size: 1 1/3 cups)

Our six-ingredient garlicky pasta recipe shows how simplicity is a virtue. A few pantry staples and fresh, ripe tomatoes are all you need to make this 25-minute meal.

How to Make It

Heat olive oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add minced garlic; sauté 30 seconds. Add chopped tomatoes; cook for 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring occasionally. Add pasta, basil, cheese, salt, and pepper, tossing gently to combine.

This was good and easy to prepare. I added a sprinkle of hot pepper flakes to the tomatoes. Next time I'll add some sliced black olives. Instead of parmesan, I like to sprinkle feta on top.

We all thought this was fantastic. It is very fresh and flavorful. We used radiators because we could not find campanella. I also cut the salt to 1 teaspoon and added 1/8 teaspoon of crushed red pepper. Will definitely make again.

This meal reminded of how much I love basil. My family absolutely loved this. Both my children had 3 servings! I'm always looking for meatless meals to incorporate into our diet. I'll definitely be making this one again. As we are not big salt eaters, I skipped it and honestly, I don't think it's necessary.

Simple and classic, but delicious. I can't exactly speak to the measurements used, given I just eyeballed everything and did the spices to taste (I made the recipe for one), but I loved the flavors together. I used whole wheat spaghetti and it was great.

I have been making my "sauce" this way for years! My entire family loves it; it's so light and fresh. We'll be having it again this week!
