Tomato and Basil Sauce over Angel Hair Pasta

When cooking pasta I usually alter the dish to make it spicy but with this dish I decided to keep it as is. A blend of garlic, thyme, oregano and fresh basil  in the sauce made every bite delicious. The cherry tomatoes especially were perfect as its juices were released with every bite. You can add chilli flakes if you want to make it spicy. If you are ever looking for a dish to make in a hurry this is it... enjoy this easy and flavorful dish :)
