Heat the oil in a pan, then fry the garlic for a few secs. Add the chopped tomatoes and balsamic vinegar and bubble for about 15-20 mins until the sauce is thick.
Meanwhile, lay the pork medallions between two layers of cling film and bash with a rolling pin until they are about 1cm thick. Mix the flour with some seasoning in one bowl, put the egg in another and the breadcrumbs in a third. Dip the pork in the flour, then the egg, then the breadcrumbs. Heat a grill to hot, then cook the pork for 3 mins on each side, until golden and cooked through. Keep warm.
Cook the pasta following pack instructions. Stir through the tomato sauce and the chopped basil, divide the pasta between 4 plates, put the crispy pork on top and eat immediately.
