- 1 (26 or 28 oz) package high quality diced tomatoes, such as Pomi
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 medium garlic cloves, minced
- 3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
- 1/4 teaspoon sugar
Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil and the garlic in a 10-inch saute pan over medium heat until fragrant but not browned, about 2 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes; simmer until thickened slightly, about 10 minutes. Stir in the basil, sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
