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.
