  2. Combine the olive oil, garlic and some salt in a bowl. Mix together and let the mixture sit for 1 hour.
  3. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente. Drain and plate the pasta. Heat the tomato mixture in a pan for just a couple of minutes until it becomes warm, not cooked.
