Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ ---------------------------------
2 (14 oz) cans diced tomatoes -- drained well
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
8 cloves garlic -- sliced
1 tbsp kosher salt
1 tbsp freshly ground black pepper
12 leaves basil -- coarsely chopped

Make sure to drain the tomatoes quite well. If you don't have canned tomatoes, use 4 cups of fresh tomatoes. Crush the tomatoes as small as possible with your fingers. Set aside.

Place 1/2 the olive oil and the garlic in a 4-1/2 qt saucepan and heat together over a medium flame. Cook for 15 minutes to infuse oil with garlic and to soften garlic. Add garlic and oil mixture to tomatoes (along with remaining oil) and salt and pepper. Stir until thoroughly mixed. Add basil.

Cook 1 lb of pasta (your favorite shape) and then add it to the hot Picchi sauce. Serves 4.
