DIRECTIONS

  • Place the tomatoes, including the juice from the cans, into a large stockpot.
  • Crush the tomatoes using the back of a large spoon, or just squish them with your hand.
  • Stir in the oregano and salt. Simmer the tomatoes, uncovered, over medium-low heat until the sauce is thick and all the liquid has evaporated, about 50 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and let cool. Stir in the garlic and basil.
  • Add the red pepper flakes, if desired.
  • Use immediately, or refrigerate in a tightly covered container for up to 3 days, or freeze for up to 2 months.
  • Bring to room temperature before using.
