Five Minute Tomato Sauce

Ingredients

  • ¼ c extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 ½ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • ½ tsp fine grain sea salt
  • 3 medium cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 28-ounce can crushed red tomatoes
  • zest of one lemon

Instructions

  1. Combine the olive oil, red pepper flakes, sea salt, and garlic in a cold saucepan. Stir while you heat the saucepan over medium-high heat, saute just 45 seconds or so until everything is fragrant - you don't want the garlic to brown. Stir in the tomatoes and heat to a gentle simmer, this takes just a couple minutes. Remove from heat and carefully take a taste (you don't want to burn your tongue)...If the sauce needs more salt add it now. Stir in the lemon zest reserving a bit to sprinkle on top of your pasta.
