Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13" baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Warm the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic, and sauté until onion is tender and garlic is fragrant. Stir in tomatoes, tomato sauce, basil, and oregano. Bring sauce to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Let sauce simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until desired consistency is reached. Stir in penne pasta. Pour pasta and sauce mixture into prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with shredded parmesan. Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until casserole is warmed through and bubbly. Sprinkle with additional dried basil before serving.
