Ingredients

  • 8-10 ripe tomatoes
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Start by blanching the tomatoes. Boil a pot of water and make a small ‘X’ mark on the bottom of each tomato. Drop them into the boiling water for about 30 seconds, then transfer them to a bowl of ice water.
  2. Peel the tomatoes and remove the seeds. Chop them into small pieces.
  3. In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and sauté until fragrant.
  4. Add the chopped tomatoes and cook them down until they become soft and the sauce thickens, stirring occasionally. This should take about 20-25 minutes.
  5. Tear the fresh basil leaves and stir them into the sauce. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Simmer for an additional 5 minutes to let the flavors meld.
  7. Remove from heat and let it cool slightly before serving.
