Place tomatoes, garlic, queso fresco in baking dish (or a large skillet). Drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt & pepper, Italian seasoning and oregano


Bake in a 400F oven for 30 minutes. Alternatively, if you are cooking it in a skillet, cover it with a lid and simmer it on the stove over medium/low heat.


Meanwhile, boil the pasta until al dente. Once the sauce is finished, remove peel from the garlic. Then, using a fork mash the garlic with the tomatoes and cheese to create a sauce.


Stir drained pasta into the sauce (if needed add 2-4 tablespoons of reserved pasta water) and garnish it with green onion, basil, or sliced chili pepper. Serve with additional protein if desired.
