    Into a frying pan pour some olive oil and two crushed cloves of garlic. While that’s slowly heating up get a can of tomatoes and put it through a fine mouli sieve. This will remove the seeds and the skins and turn the tomatoes into a smooth puree. Before the garlic starts to brown add the passed tomato.
