Nothing beats the taste of tomato sauce made with fresh, sun-ripened summer tomatoes and basil.


  • 15 plum tomatoes, blanched, peeled and seeded
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Several sprigs of basil


  1. Put the olive oil into a large sauce pan over high heat, and add the garlic. Cook the garlic for 3 minutes and then add the tomatoes.
  2. Sprinkle the tomatoes with some salt and then reduce heat to medium-low. Allow the tomato mixture to simmer for 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
  3. Tear the basil leaves and add to the sauce. Cook for an additional 5 minutes and then season to taste with salt and pepper.
