Put a medium sized pot with 2 litres of water and a teaspoon of salt to boil.
Cut the tomatoes in half and crush the garlic cloves with the back of a knife.
While the water is heating, put the oil in a large pan (I use a wok) and allow it to heat.
When the oil is hot, put the garlic cloves in the pan and leave them there for a about two minutes, just enough to give its flavor to the oil and then take them out.
At this moment, the water should be boiling. Add the fresh spaghetti and let them boil for 3 minutes.
At the same time, add the tomatoes in the pan and gently toss them in the olive oil.
When the spaghetti are done, transfer them into the pan and add a tablespoon or two of the water in which they have boiled. Toss everything together for about two minutes.
Transfer them onto two plates, season with roughly chopped basil and add some black pepper.
Serve hot, along with a glass of your favourite wine.
