Saute the onion/garlic and oregano in a hot pan with the olive oil till translucent /browning.Add the tomatoes,corn, puree,salt and black pepper and turn down the heat.Stir and make sure the tomatoes do not stew which would turn this watery.Add basil before serving and turn off the heat.Boil the pasta in a pot of water according to package instructions.I usually use a pot with generous water to drown the pasta and add the pasta to rapidly boiling water with 1tbsp of salt.This adds more flavor and prevents pasta from sticking.Six minutes tops and pasta is ready.Drain the pasta and toss it into the sauce.Serve hot with grated cheese.
