Serves 4 servings
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO)
3 cloves garlic crushed
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 32-ounce can chunky-style crushed tomatoes
Salt and pepper
1 teaspoon Italian dried seasoning
1 handful flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped

When the pepper snaps and the garlic sizzles, add the tomato paste, cook for a minute, then stir in the crushed tomatoes. Season the sauce with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Cook for five minutes and stir in parsley.

Add EVOO to a medium-size saucepan over moderate heat. Add the garlic and crushed pepper to the heated olive oil.
