To obtain a dense mixture, you will have to add the penne and cook the resulted mixture up to nine minutes. To save time, try to prepare the sauce while the pasta is cooking. Use a medium-sized skillet to heat up the remaining olive oil. Then add the chosen amount of garlic and sauté it until you obtain a color similar to gold. Continue sautéing while adding the preferred amount of pepper and salt. During the process, add the crushed tomatoes and the two tablespoons of fresh basil. You will have to use half of the total quantity of mozzarella to skillet and keep it warm. The next step will be to mix the pasta with the sauce, and then the other half of mozzarella. Sprinkle the pasta with oregano and serve warm.
