    6 cloves garlic crushed
    3 tbsp fresh, chopped basil about 18 leaves
    2 tsp sea salt or kosher salt

    1 tsp sugar, optional


Pour both cans of tomatoes into a deep bowl and crush with your fingers. Set aside.

Heat oil in bottom of a deep skillet over medium heat until shimmering, add onion, garlic and salt. Cook until onion is softened and translucent and garlic perfumes the air. Add tomatoes, bring up to a boil, slowly, lower to a simmer. Simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring frequently. Add pepper towards the end of cooking. Adjust seasoning to taste. Add basil just before serving. If the sauce is a little sour, add a pinch or two of sugar. Serve with your favorite pasta.
