  1. Cut a small cross into the cherry tomatoes, then plunge them in boiling water for 15 seconds. After 15 seconds, cool with cold water.
  2. Peel then crush the tomatoes in a large bowl to obtain their juice.
  3. Add ¾ of the basil bunch (tied with a string), the salt, and the crushed garlic.
  4. Heat the olive oil in a saucepan, then add the cherry tomato mixture. Cook for a few minutes.
  5. Remove from the heat. Remove the bunch of basil (it will have blackened) and add the remaining quarter of basil. Season as needed.
  6. Cook some spaghetti in salted boiling water. Save a ladleful of cooking water before draining the pasta.
  7. In a large bowl, add the pasta, the tomato sauce, and the ladleful of water. Mix well. Serve with some grated Parmesan cheese and enjoy!
