The "Top Chef" star shares his simple recipe for pomarola. "This is the simplest of sauces out there, so simple I don't even feel I want to call it cooking," he writes in his cookbook, 'But it's also delicious, so it does deserve the name of sauce."

Ingredients

  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 8 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 28-oz. can of whole plum tomatoes (packed only in tomato juice)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 10 basil leaves
  • Cooking Directions

    Smash the garlic with the back of a knife. Place the garlic and 5 tablespoons of olive oil in a saucepan and cook over medium heat until the garlic is golden brown. Add the tomatoes and generous pinches of salt and pepper.

    Cook over medium-high heat until the sauce is thick and no longer watery, about 10 to 15 minutes. Add the remaining 3 tablespoons of olive oil and turn the heat to high. Stir, crushing the tomatoes with the back of a wooden spoon. Cook until the oil turns red, then turn off the heat and add the basil at the very end.

    Makes 2 cups
