This is our go-to recipe for pasta, eggs, shrimp, mussels, pizza, lasagna and so much more! So simple and easy to make, you should definitely give it a try next time you need a tomato sauce!
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
1 large can whole peeled tomatoes or 6 blanched & peeled fresh tomatoes
1 cup chicken stock
3-5 cloves fresh garlic, thinly sliced
1/3 cup red wine
2 Tbs dried basil
½ cup chopped fresh basil
Heat olive oil in a large skillet or pot over low to medium heat. Add chopped garlic & sauté 1 minute. Add the red wine and stir for a minute. Add chicken stock, tomatoes and dried basil.
Continue simmering on medium to low heat, stirring frequently, until reduced to half. For thicker sauces like pizza and lasagna, render it down a little longer. Stir in basil just before serving. Add pepper if desired. Enjoy!
