Ingredients

Kosher salt

1 1/2 pounds ripe on-the-vine tomatoes, finely chopped

1/4 cup good-quality olive oil, plus more for drizzling

4 cloves garlic, very thinly sliced

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

12 ounces angel hair pasta

1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for serving

1/4 cup sliced basil

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  2. Put the tomatoes in a large bowl. Heat the olive oil and garlic in a small saucepan over medium heat until the garlic is translucent, but not at all browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the crushed red pepper flakes, then pour the garlic oil over the tomatoes. Add 1 teaspoon salt and toss to coat.
  3. Cook the pasta according to package directions. Transfer the pasta directly from the boiling water to the bowl with the tomatoes using a pasta fork or tongs. Sprinkle in the Parmesan and some of the basil and toss to coat; let stand 5 minutes so that the sauce absorbs slightly. Top with the remaining basil and a little additional olive oil and serve with additional Parmesan.
