  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 400 g tinned tomatoes
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp chopped basil optional
  1. Pour the oil into a pan and add the crushed garlic. Let it sizzle until the garlic begins to change colour. Add the tinned tomatoes, sugar, salt and pepper
  2. Bring to the boil, then simmer on a low heat for about 20 minutes until the sauce has thickened. (It should begin to make indentations on the surface as it thickens)
  3. Turn off the heat and check the seasoning. Add the chopped basil, if using.
