DIRECTIONS

  • In a large heavy skillet, on low heat, very slowly heat the olive oil, garlic, red pepper flakes, basil and mint.
  • Let cook for about 5 minutes or until garlic is golden brown.
  • If you are using the plum or fresh tomatoes, crush them in your hands or put them in a blender for 1-2 seconds (this will speed up the cooking process and give a smoother consistency to the sauce).
  • Raise the heat to medium high.
  • When oil is really hot, carefully add the tomatoes.
  • Let the sauce come to a soft boil.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add a pinch more of red pepper, basil and mint.
  • Add the chopped parsley.
  • Let sauce simmer, uncovered for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon.
