Super Low-Fat Tomato Sauce

1 33 1/3-oz. can plum tomatoes, undrained

1-2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tsp dried basil
1/4-1/2 tsp hot red pepper flakes

  1. Prepare pasta according to package directions. While pasta is cooking, combine remaining ingredients in a 2-quart saucepan and heat to boiling.

  2. Reduce heat and simmer until the liquid is reduced by half, approximately 10-20 minutes. In a food processor or blender, puree small quantities of the sauce to desired consistency, using 3 to 4 quick on-off motions for a chunky sauce, longer for a smoother sauce.

  3. When pasta is done, drain. Pour sauce over pasta and serve immediately.

Servings: 4
Enough for one pound of your favorite pasta.
