Simple Marinara

Ingredients (use vegan versions):

* 4 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
* 10 cloves garlic, crushed
* 1-2 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
* 1 teaspoon dried oregano
* 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
* 1 teaspoon dried basil
* 1 29oz can crushed tomatoes
* 1 29oz can whole tomatoes, crushed with your hands
* 2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
* salt/pepper to taste
* 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil


Start with a 4 quart heavy-bottomed more saucy. In a COLD pan add the
olive oil, garlic, red pepper flakes, oregano, rosemary, dried basil
and a pinch of salt. Slowly bring this up to a medium temperature. When
the garlic is sizzling and very fragrant add the tomatoes and balsamic
vinegar. Bring to a gentle boil for several minutes. Turn down heat and
cook for about 10 more minutes. Taste and adjust seasonings
(salt/pepper). Just before serving, stir in the fresh basil.

This will cover at least 1 lb of dried pasta and probably closer to 2
lbs depending on how much sauce you like. It freezes great as well.

Serves: enough for 1-2 lbs of pasta

Preparation time: 20 minutes
