Basil Spaghetti with Cheesy Broiled Tomatoes

I saw this recipe on Pinterest and made it for dinner last night. I love how quick it all came together. Perfect for a hot summer night. So good.

12 ounces spaghetti
3 large beefsteak tomatoes (about 1 1/2 pounds each cut into 4 thick slices)
3 Tbsp olive oil plus more for baking sheet
kosher salt, black pepper
8 ounces fresh mozzarella, grated
1/4 cup parmesan, shaved
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/4 to 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
3/4 cup torn fresh basil leaves

Cook pasta al dente according to package directions, drain, return to pot. Preheat broiler, arrange tomato slices on a lightly oiled rimmed baking sheet. Season with a 1/4 tsp each of salt and pepper. Dividing evenly, sprinkle each slice with the cheeses. Broil until bubbly and golden, 3 to 5 minutes.

In a small saucepan heat oil, garlic and red pepper flakes until fragrant, about 2 minutes.

Add the garlic oil, salt and pepper and torn basil to the pasta, top with broiled tomatoes and extra shaved parmesan.
