Cook linguine according to package directions, omitting any salt. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet. Add garlic and cook over medium heat until the garlic begins to turn golden (take care not to burn). Stir in crushed red pepper flakes. Add undrained tomatoes, sugar, and black pepper. Cover and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the sauce thickens, about 15 minutes. Stir in basil. Drain pasta and toss with the sauce. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
