- 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh basil
- 3 clove garlic, chopped
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 3 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Let stand 10 minutes. Place over low heat; simmer until tomatoes are tender and mixture is thick, 20 to 40 minutes.
