  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 3 Roma tomatoes diced
  • sea salt to taste
  • 1-2 Tbsp fresh basil or parsley chopped


  • Heat the oil in a medium saucepan.
  • Add the garlic and allow it to cook for 10-15 seconds.
  • Stir in the tomatoes and bring the mix to a low simmer.
  • Add a dash of salt at this time as well. Tomatoes have a naturally high amount of sodium, so you don't need much!
  • Allow the sauce to cook for 13-15 minutes, until it has reduced a bit and the tomatoes are, well, saucy.
  • Stir in the fresh herb, if using.
  • Use as desired.
