1. Bring a large pot of heavily salted water to a boil.
2. Cook pasta until al dente according to package directions.
3. Reserve ½ cup pasta water and drain.
4. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
5. Add the cherry tomatoes and cook until softened, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.
6. Add the garlic, salt and crushed red pepper and cook until fragrant, 1 more minute.
7. Use the back of a spoon or a potato masher to carefully mash the tomatoes to release their juices.
8. Continue cooking until the tomatoes continue to burst and create a sauce, 5 more minutes.
9. Transfer the drained pasta on top of the tomato sauce along with the basil and parmesan cheese and toss to combine.
10. Add as much of the reserved pasta water as needed to reach the desired consistency.
11. Serve immediately with more fresh basil and parmesan cheese, if desired.
