A fast and healthy alternative to jarred marinara sauce when fresh tomatoes aren't available or in season.
Drizzle the olive oil into a medium size frying pan on medium-high heat.
Crush or chop the fresh garlic cloves and mix into the olive oil in the pan. Saute for about 30 seconds to release flavor.
Add one 18 ounce jar of diced or crushed tomatoes to the pan and stir.
Add herbs and sea salt. Simmer for about 10 minutes to blend flavors.
Refrigerate leftovers. Use up within 3-4 days.
If you have fresh herbs available for this recipe, that is wonderful! Simply substitute 1 Tbl of chopped, fresh herb for each tsp of dried herb.
