Italian San Marzanos are probably the most well-known tomatoes. Recognized for their slightly sweet taste and low acidity, they’re plump and fleshy with very few seeds. Find them canned at specialty stores and Italian grocery stores.



  1. In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, lightly brown the garlic in the oil. Add the tomatoes and crush with a wooden spoon. Add the dried oregano, salt and red pepper flakes.
  2. Bring to a boil and let simmer for about 30 minutes or until the sauce thickens.
  3. When ready to serve, add a few leaves of fresh oregano. Delicious with Potato Gnocchi.
