Number of Servings: 5


    1/4 cup EVOO
    1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
    1/2 tsp fine grain sea salt
    3 medium cloves of garlic, finely chopped
    1 28 oz. can crushed red tomatoes
    zest of one lemon
    4 tsp sugar in the raw (give or take maybe not this much, can't really remember?)


I like to put the tomatoes into the blender to liquify them. Combine the olive oil, red pepper flakes, sea salt, and garlic in a cold saucepan. Stir while you heat the saucepan over medium-hgih heat, saute just 45 seconds or so until everything is fragrant--you don't want the garlic to brown. Stir in the tomatoes and heat to a gentle simmer, this takes just a couple minutes. Stir in lemon zest and sugar.
