Because this sauce is so simple, it's important to use good-quality Italian tomatoes.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and cook slowly until golden brown on all sides, about 10 minutes.

  • Add tomatoes and their juice (do this carefully to keep oil from spattering), red-pepper flakes, and salt and pepper to taste; raise heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer, breaking up tomatoes into small pieces with the side of a wooden spoon.

  • Cook until sauce thickens, about 25 minutes. Remove from heat, transfer to a serving dish, and garnish with parsley.
