Heat oil in a pan on medium low and add garlic.  Cook till just slightly golden about 3-5minutes and add tomatoes.  Let tomatoes cook until tender, 15 -20minutes.  Smash tomatoes down with a spoon and add vinegar, basil and salt, cook for another 5-15minutes until you have the consistency you want. Taste to see if it needs more salt.  Toss with pasta and serve.

Serves  4-6 portions


  • Depending on what tomatoes you use you may have more or less liquid during cooking
  • Don’t over-cook the tomatoes; they should still be chunky with some liquid in the pan
