|Crushed red pepper||1 1⁄2 Teaspoon|
|Extra virgin olive oil||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Italian plum tomatoes||4 Can (40 oz)|
|Garlic||6 Clove (30 gm), crushed with side of chef's knife|
In 8 quart Dutch oven, heat olive oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking.
Add garlic and cook, stirring, 2 minutes; do not brown.
Stir in tomatoes with their juice, salt, and red pepper; heat to boiling over high heat.
Reduce heat to low; simmer, uncovered, 50 minutes or until sauce thickens slightly, stirring occasionally and crushing tomatoes with back of spoon.
For smooth, traditional texture, press tomato mixture through food mill into large bowl. (Or, leave sauce as is for a hearty, chunky texture.)
Cool sauce slightly.
Spoon into jars.
Store in refrigerator for up to a week or spoon into freezer proof containers and freeze for up to 2 months.
