Cook spaghetti according to packet instructions. Drain and set aside.
Heat olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. When the oil is hot, lightly fry the onion for 5 minutes. Add the garlic and fry for one minute. After 1 minute add the tomatoes. Reduce heat and simmer for about 5 minutes until the tomatoes fall apart easily.
Place the cooked pasta into the pan and season with salt and pepper. Heat everything well.
Turn off the heat and pour a generous shot (about 2 tablespoons) of olive oil over the pasta. Sprinkle with the basil and mix well.
Crumble Gorgonzola cheese over the pasta and garnish with some basil.
