Tomato Sauce

Tomato Sauce

Cuisine: Italian


  • 2 tbsps olive oil
  • 5 garlic cloves roughly chopped (use as much or as little as preferred)
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • 1-2 tsp dried red pepper flakes
  • 1 28 oz can whole peeled tomatoes
  • 1 tsp sugar


  • Heat oil in pan and add garlic cloves. Be careful not to burn the garlic, as it will become bitter.
  • Once garlic is infused in the oil, remove from pan.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer until sauce thickens.


TIP: to reduce some of the acid, add a teaspoon of baking soda to your sauce.
