Tomato Sauce

Ingredients – serves 2 -4

  • 1 – large 28 oz can of San Marzano tomatoes
  • 6 garlic cloves – chopped
  • 6 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large bunch of fresh basil (aprox 2/3 cup) washed and torn into small pieces
  • salt and pepper

Step 1: Remove all of the basil leaves from their stock and tear them into small pieces. 

Step 3: Put the oil, garlic, tomatoes, salt and some fresh ground pepper in a sauce pan and cook uncovered for 20-25 minutes.  Stir occasionally and break up any big tomatoes with a spoon.  Whatever you do – do not put a lid on the sauce. Taste the sauce and add more salt if necessary.

Step 5: Right before serving mix in the basil – reserving some as a garnish.
