  • Step 1

    Blend the can of diced tomatoes and garlic together in a food processor until the lumpy bits are broken down.

  • Step 2

    In a large pot, pour the 2 cups of water and the blended tomatoes and garlic and let the mixture come to a boil.

  • Step 3

    When the tomato sauce mixture has come to a boil, throw in the pasta.

  • Step 4

    While the pasta is cooking, prepare the black olives by removing the pits (if you bought the ones with the pits still in them) and cutting each into roughly 3-4 slices.

  • Step 5

    Half of the basil will be cooked together with the pasta, while the other half will be used as a garnish when serving. Halfway through the cooking time of the pasta, add the olives and basil in with the pasta and let cook until the pasta is al dente.

  • Step 6

    Just before turning off the fire, season the sauce with the 2 tablespoons of sugar and 2 teaspoons of salt (feel free to tweak to your personal preference).

  • Step 7

    Serve with the remaining basil.
