Simple Marinara Sauce

Simple... Simple... Simple... You can also simmer this in the Crock Pot.


1 6-Pound can of Crushed Tomato
1/2 Cup Olive Oil
1 6-8 Cloves of Garlic, Chopped
1-2 Teaspoons Crushed Red Pepper
1 1/2 Cups Chopped Basil
2 Tablespoons Kosher Salt
2 Tablespoons Sugar
1 Tablespoons Dry Oregano

Put the oil in a thick pan and add the garlic before you turn the flame on. It is important to only warm up the garlic... you are not trying to cook it at this point. If you over cook your garlic your sauce will taste bitter.

Add the Red Pepper...   

Add the tomatoes.

Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil...

Bring heat down to low and simmer for 1 Hour... 

Stir every 15 minutes. DONE!!!
