Ingredients
 2 tbsp olive oil
 1 ½ pounds ripe plum tomatoes (about 6-8), coarsely chopped
 1 cloves garlic, smashed and thinly sliced lengthwise
 1 small dried red pepper, seeds removed
 ½ tsp salt or to taste
 1 tbsp freshly grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
How to
1

Heat the oil in a wok or heavy frying pan over medium-high heat. When the oil starts to shimmer add the garlic and stir-fry until golden. Do not let it burn or it will become bitter. If you like a spicy sauce, add the pepper.

2

Add the tomatoes and stir-fry. There will be a lot of spitting and hissing as the wet tomatoes hit the hot oil. Turn the heat to medium-low and cook the tomatoes down until they are reduced by about half and have taken on a more orangey hue. Adjust the seasoning by adding salt to taste. If the sauce looks like it’s drying out too much, add a little water. At this point freeze if not using immediately.

3

Add the Parmesan, taste for seasoning then serve.
