1/2 c Extra virgin olive oil
6 Garlic cloves, crushed with side of chef's knife
4 Cans (35 ounces each ) Italian plum tomatoes
1 tb Salt
1 To 1 1/2 tsp crushed Red pepper
In 8-quart Dutch oven, heat olive oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Add garlic and cook, stirring, 2 minutes; do not brown. Stir in tomatoes with their juice, salt, and red pepper; heat to boiling over high heat. Reduce heat to low; simmer, uncovered, 50 minutes or until sauce thickens slightly, stirring occasionally and crushing tomatoes with back of spoon. For smooth, traditional texture, press tomato mixture through food mill into large bowl. (Or, leave sauce as is for a hearty, chunky texture.) Cool sauce slightly. Spoon into jars. Store in refrigerator for up to a week. Or spoon into freezer-proof containers and freeze for up to 2 months. Makes about 14 cups.
