Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain, reserving 1/3 cup (75 mL) cooking liquid.
Meanwhile, heat oil in large ovenproof skillet set over medium heat; cook garlic and pepper flakes for about 1 minute or until starting to soften. Stir in tomatoes, salt and pepper. Lightly crush tomatoes with potato masher; bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer for about 10 minutes or until sauce thickens slightly.
Add pasta and reserved cooking liquid to skillet; toss with sauce until well coated. Stir in half of the basil. Arrange mozzarella slices over top and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese; broil for 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese melts. Sprinkle with remaining basil.
Tip: Any short, tube pasta works well in this dish. Try macaroni, rigatoni or cavatappi.
