Spaghetti with Sundried tomatoes

This dish is great when you want something tasty but don't feel like a lot of cooking. It's also really just a guideline, so if you don't like sundried tomatoes, or don't have them on hand, feel free to add in whatever you wish. The combination of garlic infused oil and parmesan cheese is just amazing, and the basil and tomatoes make it a truly wonderful dish.

1 pound of spaghetti (or your pasta preference)
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
4 garlic cloves
1/3 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes
8-10 basil leaves

1. In a small saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Slice garlic cloves and add to the oil and cook for 1 minute (you will hear sizzling and garlic will brown). Remove from heat and let sit for 10 minutes. Strain and dispose of garlic.

2. While the oil is resting, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add spaghetti and cook for about 10 minutes or as directed on the package.

3.Chop sun dried tomatoes and basil. Strain pasta and place on serving dish. Add oil, basil, parmesan, and tomatoes. Toss and serve with additional parmesan cheese if desired.
