Simple Marinara Sauce

Sometimes a simple marinara sauce over pasta, some crusty bread and a good glass of wine is all you need for a fantastic dinner.  Here is the simplest of marinara recipes.

1 14oz can of good quality tomatoes, diced
Olive oil
2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
red pepper flakes
3 tbsp chopped basil

Drizzle olive oil in a sauce pot. Add garlic and saute for a few minutes. Add diced tomatoes. Sprinkle in red pepper flakes to your liking. Simmer for at least 20 minutes. Right before serving add basil. Serve over pasta.

    This is a great recipe. I used about a tablespoon of olive oil, and fresh basil. This marinara sauce is super simple to make and goes great with handmade pasta cranked out with a pasta maker.

    Thanks for the recipe!
