1 large tube of tomato paste (I like TJ's and Whole Foods best)
1 can of tomato sauce
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 tablespoons of olive oil
Red pepper flakes
First, I mince the garlic into a big jar and add in the oil. Then I add a healthy pinch of red pepper flake (depending on how hot somebody wants it), same of dried oregano, a super generous pinch of salt, and mix all of that into the oil.
Next, I add the paste and sauce and whisk until it's one consistency. Taste. If it makes you groan in happiness, you're good. If it doesn't, probably start with more salt to make everything sing a little better. After that, add for heat and herb flavor.
