Salsa Pomodoro

This is one of the fastest and easiest pasta sauces you will ever make and it is totally authentic.  I have had this exact sauce many times in Italy and it is the simplicity and quality of the ingredients that makes it so good.  2 28oz or 32 oz can of crushed San Marzano Tomatoes, if these are not available, I like Muir Glen Organic. As this is the base of your sauce, find the best tomatoes you can.  Note: I prefer to use crushed tomatoes, as they are already quite thick, and since you are only cooking for 30-45 minutes, you don't have time to reduce whole or diced tomatoes. Ingredients 4 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil 1 clove of Garlic, lightly crushed 6 leaves of fresh Basil, whole 1 tsp Sea Salt Fresh Black Pepper Put your tomatoes in a saucepan and bring to a soft simmer, add the other ingredients and simmer gently for about 30-45 minutes.You will know the sauce is ready, when the oil separates.   Remove the garlic and basil and serve over spaghetti, linguini
