cup
olive oil
2

Kosher salt and black pepper

  1. Coarsely chop the tomatoes, reserving the juices. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  2. Add the tomatoes and their juices, 1 ½ teaspoons salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes break down and the sauce thickens, 45 to 50 minutes.
