Video of the Day

Heat the oil in a saucepan and sauté the garlic for 30 seconds.

Open the can of tomatoes and add it to the pan.

Bring the liquid to a fast simmer and cook for about 5 minutes.

Blend or chop the tomatoes. You can use a hand blender to coarsely puree the tomatoes or use a large spoon to mash them up right in the pot, or transfer the mixture to a blender or food processor.

Season to taste with salt and pepper and continue mashing or pureeing until sauce is coarse but smooth.

Add the basil and serve.

Tips & Warnings

  • Don't worry too much about precise measurements. Just add enough cooked garlic, salt, pepper and basil until the sauce tastes right to you.
  • You can also skip the garlic in this recipe or use garlic powder.
  • The sauce can be enjoyed by itself for a quick dinner, but you can also add vegetables to your pasta for a more substantial meal: sautéed mushrooms, zucchini and so on.
