Salsa pomodoro alla pizzaiola

Naples - Campagna
Preparation - Simple
Serves 4

'Pizzaiola' is any sauce in which oregano plays a major part - 'pizzaiola' because the sauce tastes like pizza topping.

2 cloves garlic, sliced
1 small tin (15oz) tomatoes
1 t dried oregano or 2 t fresh, chopped
sprig of fresh Italian parsley
2 T good olive oil
1 pound pasta

SET 6 quarts of water to boil in a large pot for the pasta.

SAUTÉ the garlic in the 2 T olive oil until golden.

ADD the tomatoes (peeled and seeded if you are using fresh) and cook until reduced.

ADD 2 T of kosher salt to the pasta water, return it to the boil, and cook the pasta 8 - 12 minutes.

ADD the the oregano and parsley to the sauce, salt and pepper to taste.

DRAIN the cooked pasta. Pour a little of your sauce into the bottom of the service bowl and add the pasta.
