2 - 28oz cans organic whole tomatoes
1/2 cup olive oil
1 large shallot - diced
3 garlic cloves - minced
1/2 tsp sea salt
2 tsp Italian seasoning - I love Simply Organic brand
Using a wire whisk, saute' shallots, garlic and seasoning in olive oil over med high heat. Stir continuously once the oil begins to simmer. Do this for approximately 1 minute. Add the tomatoes and stir again with the wire whisk - squashing the tomatoes down to release all juices. Turn the heat up to high and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 4 hours.
DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP! Remove from heat and let cool for 20-30 minutes. Puree in a high power blender for 30 seconds. This step makes all the difference. Your sauce will be velvety smooth and melt in your mouth.
Use on pasta, pizza, or bread dipping.
