Here’s an easy pasta topping recipe from Pam Anderson (not the actress), author of several cookbooks, including “The Perfect Recipe: Getting It Right Every Time — Making Our Favorite Dishes the Absolute Best They Can Be.”
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes (preferably fire-roasted)
Heat oil and garlic in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. When garlic starts to sizzle, add tomatoes and enough water to make a sauce that is neither thin nor too thick. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to medium-low, and continue to simmer, partially covered, to blend flavors, about 10 minutes.
Yield: A generous 3 cups.
