PREPARATION: step-by-step photographed recipe

rinse and slice the tomatoes. in the meantime boil the water
in a pan fry slightly the olive oil
add crushed garlic and a half of the tomatoes
salt and boil the tomatoes until a rather dense sauce. It is possible to sieve it for making a more homogeneous sauce.
