      Lovely simple sauce and very versatile - this is something that everyone should learn to make properly. May I make a suggestion re fresh basil - after your sauce as come to a simmer place the chopped basil on top (DO NOT STIR) and leave it there until the sauce is cooked - then stir thru.

      DH said, "I hope you NEVER buy jarred sauce again!" You've got to love a simple sauce that tastes like summer in Italy (well, what I imagine Summer in Italy would taste like!) I think the key is to just bring the garlic to sizzle, not to brown it or overcook it. I am willing to bet this would be out of this world if make with fresh summer tomatoes warm from the sun! Wonderful recipe, Dria - thanks so much for sharing! Made for PAC Spring 2010 - you were adopted (and thank goodness for that!)
