Simple Scrumptious Spaghetti Sauce

You all know how to make the spaghetti, so I'll spare you the details...the sauce would be great with fresh tomatoes, but I didn't have any on hand.

Spaghetti Sauce - the hubby always makes this, says it's something his mom always made, we'll have to ask her where she got it!

1 large can whole tomatoes
5 T extra virgin olive oil
5 garlic cloves
10 basil leaves

Here's how we make it, but I'm sure there are better ways!
Put the tomatoes in a pan. Use a potato masher gently to mash them up the best you can-watch out for flying tomato juice! Add the olive oil and use a garlic press to add the garlic. (I usually end up doing 6 or 7 because nothing comes out from the first one!) Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer about 20 minutes. Add the basil by cutting small strips into the sauce. Stir and leave on low another few minutes. Your sauce is ready!

This is pretty healthy, too! Use whole wheat pasta to make it even more healthy!
