Number of Servings: 4


    28 ounces diced tomatoes, drained (salt free)
    4 cloves garlic, pressed
    1 tablespoon tomato paste
    1 teaspoon olive oil
    1 teaspoon basil leaves, fresh
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon pepper, ground


Makes 4 servings

1. Pulse the tomatoes in a food processor until mostly smooth, about ten 1-second pulses; set aside.

2. Cook the garlic, tomato paste, and oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the tomato paste begins to brown, about 2 minutes. [note: This is best in a regular skillet, not non-stick, but non-stick is fine if that's all you have.]

3. Stir in the pureed tomatoes and cook until the sauce is thickened, about 20 minutes.

4. Off the heat, stir in the basil and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Number of Servings: 4
