Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over
high heat. Add the
pasta and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring
occasionally, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain pasta into a large bowl
and reserve 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid.
In a medium skillet heat the olive oil over medium
heat. Add the
garlic and saute until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes,
salt, and pepper. As the tomatoes cook and soften, smash them with
a fork. Continue to cook until the tomatoes make a chunky style
sauce, about 4 minutes. Transfer the tomato sauce to the bowl with
the pasta. Toss to combine. Add the basil leaves and mozzarella.
Stir to combine. Add the reserved pasta water, 1/4 cup at a time,
until the pasta is moist. Serve.
