  • 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 2 sprigs basil
  • 2 cans 28oz whole peeled tomatoes

Heat oil in a medium heavy pot over medium. Cook onion, stirring occasionally, until very soft, 8-10 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring ocassionally, until very soft, about 5 minutes; stir in basil. Add tomatoes, crushing with your hands as you go; season with salt and pepper and bring to a simmer.
