My Favorite Tomato Sauce

My Favorite Tomato Sauce

1 big can of Whole Peeled San Marzano Tomatoes

1 small can of Tomato Paste

water

Salt & Pepper

Garlic

Dried Basil & Parsley

Fresh Basil

Olive Oil

Saute a small amount of olive oil and garlic over medium heat in a big pot.  Be careful not to burn the garlic!!  After the garlic has had a chance to saute, add the can of Whole Peeled San Marzano Tomatoes and break the tomatoes up with your hands or a wooden spoon.  I like to leave some of the tomatoes chunky, but that’s just my preference.  After the tomatoes are mostly broken up, add the can of Tomato Paste, half of a big can of water,  dried basil, dried parsley, salt, pepper and fresh basil.  Use your judgement with the amounts that you put in.  I like to rip some of the fresh basil up and toss it in & I also throw some whole leaves of basil in the pot.  Bring up to a boil and then let simmer for as long as you can!

There you have it.  My favorite tomato sauce ever.
