- 1 T. olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
- 1 (15 ounce) can high-quality tomato sauce
- ½ tsp. dried basil
- ½ tsp. dried oregano
- ¼ tsp. salt
- Heat oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add garlic cloves and sauté until browned, stirring occasionally to prevent scorching, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove garlic and discard.
- Stir in tomato sauce, basil, oregano, and salt. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until flavors have blended, about 10 minutes. Keep warm over low-heat until serving time, or cool completely and store covered in the refrigerator.
