Heat olive oil in frying pan. While oil heats up, chop garlic and add to oil. Fry garlic until golden brown (color of toast). Set aside. Drain peeled Italian tomatoes and mash into a thick puree. Pour into the frying pan and add bay leaves, fresh basil, sea salt and fresh pepper. Cook for 25 to 30 minutes on medium flame. In a large pot boil water and add pasta. Cook for 12 minutes. Drain pasta and return it to the pot. Add 1 scoop of sauce and mix. Serve pasta in separate bowls and add marinara sauce to each serving.
