    Lucky in Bayview's Note:

    I pulled this recipe out of a Martha Stewart magazine years ago. If you like your sauce with a kick, you'll like this. Its so easy and pretty healthy. She mentions that since the sauce is so simple its best ot use good-quality Italian tomatoes.

      Simplicity rules! Even though I made a few changes, I believe I kept in the spirit of the recipe, with a simple yet satisfying result. Because I love garlic, I used about 5 cloves, which I minced and cooked until golden, about 2 minutes. I wasn't sure from the directions if I was to leave the cloves whole (and pick them out later?) but I went with the traditional methode. Instead of whole tomatoes, I used a 28 oz. can of chopped San Marzano tomatoes. Obviously, using a superior tomato product is key here. I then followed exactly as posted. I did not find this especially spicy, given the small amount of red pepper flakes. I served this over some mostaccioli pasta and enjoyed every last bite! Made for Spring PAC 2012.
