  • 6

    cloves garlic

  • 6

    Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 28 oz can of whole plum tomatoes (packed in only tomato juice)

  • salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste

  • 3-4

    leaves fresh basil for garnish


Smash 6 cloves of garlic with the back of a knife. Over medium heat, cook garlic in 3 Tbsp. of EVOO until golden brown. Add tomatoes and generous pinch of salt and pepper. Cook until thick (about 8 to 10 minutes) and is no longer watery in consistency. Add 3 more Tbsp. more of EVOO, turn to higher heat. Crush tomatoes with the back of a wooden spoon. Cook until the oil turns red. This will tell you the sauce is done! Cook's Note: The sauce is very versatile and can be used with any pasta; added to meats, fish, vegetables; or topped on toasted crostini, breads, pizza crusts.
