This my family recipe for tomato sauce. It is a basic tomato sauce and a great recipe to have.
Saute 6-8 garlic cloves in several Tablespoons olive oil. Saute for 1-2 minutes- don't let it get brown.Pour in one large can of crushed tomatoes and add dried basil (a few Tablespoons) or fresh if you have it. Stir together and let simmer on low for at least 20 minutes.
This is a great simple sauce- very fresh tasting. You can easily add mushrooms, olives, chicken- whatever you would like, but I always keep a batch on hand for pizza sauce, dipping, or just some good old spaghetti!
