- 4 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
- 6 cloves garlic minced
- 1/4 cup/ 25g chopped basil leaves fresh
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 3X14oz/400g canned tomatoes good quality
- 1/2 tsp salt
Process chopped tomatoes in a food processor for a smoother texture or use crushed tomatoes or passata. (Alternatively you can skip this step for a chunky spaghetti sauce.)
In a large pot heat the olive oil over low heat, add minced garlic and chopped basil and stir for no longer than 10-20 seconds. Do not let them burn or they will turn bitter.
Add tomatoes, dried oregano and salt, bring to a boil and let it simmer over very low heat for 7-10 minutes.
Cool and store in a clean jar or divide and freeze for a later use.
