Simple spaghetti sauce

This is really easy to make, doesn't take forever and tastes great.

1-2 tbsp. olive oil
2-3 cloves of garlic - we like garlic so we tend to use more
1 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
1-1.5 tbsp. Italian seasoning or dried basil - I like to add some fresh basil and/or parsley when I have it
salt and pepper to taste

Heat the oil in a pot large enough to hold the crushed tomatoes. Add the garlic and saute for about a minute. You don't want to burn the garlic. Now add the crushed tomatoes, dried herbs and salt and pepper. Let simmer for about 20 minutes and that's it...a red sauce is made. Add the fresh herbs at the end of cooking if you'd like to add them in. If we want a meat sauce, then I add meat to it.
