Garlicky Marinara Sauce
Garlicky Marinara Sauce

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil
4 heaping tablespoons (1/3 cup) very thinly sliced garlic
two 28-ounce cans tomatoes
1/4 cup firmly packed fresh basil leaves, torn

Directions:
1. Place oil in heavy saucepan over moderately high heat. Add the garlic and sauté, stirring occasionally, until it just starts to brown, about 5 minutes.
2. Empty contents of tomato cans into a sieve, reserving tomato liquid, if desired, for another use. Squeeze the juice out of the tomatoes with your hands, letting the juice run through the sieve. (The remaining tomatoes should be a coarse, chunky pulp.) Add tomatoes to pan with the basil. Simmer for 10 minutes, season, and serve.

Makes enough sauce for 1 pound shrimp
