Serves 4

3tablespoons olive oil
4cloves garlic, chopped
1medium onion, chopped
1can (32 ounces) San Marzano tomatoes
Salt and pepper, to taste
10leaves basil
1pound penne
Extra basil leaves (for garnish)

1. In a heavy-based flameproof casserole, heat the oil. When it is hot, add the garlic. Cook, stirring often, for 1 minute. Don't let it brown. Add the onion. Cook, stirring often, for 8 minutes or until softened, but not browned.

2. Add the tomatoes and stir well. Simmer for 30 minutes or until the tomatoes break up easily when stirred with a wire whisk. Break up all the tomatoes until uniformly chunky.

3. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of well-salted water to a boil.

4. Remove the tomato mixture from the heat. Stir in the basil, salt, and pepper.

5. Add the penne to the water and cook, stirring often, for 10 minutes or until tender. Drain the pasta and stir it into the tomato sauce.

6. Garnish with more basil leaves and sprinkle with Parmesan. Adapted from Toscana Kitchen + Bar
