POINTS® Value: 1Servings: 8Preparation Time: 14 minCooking Time: 11 minLevel of Difficulty: Easy

1 tsp olive oil

1/2 tsp dried oregano

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic; cook until soft, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add oregano; cook 45 seconds. Add tomatoes and bring to a simmer; partially cover pan and simmer 3 to 5 minutes.
Puree sauce in pan using an immersion blender. Or working in batches, transfer tomato mixture to a blender and puree until smooth (careful not to splatter hot liquid); return pureed tomato mixture to pan.
Set pan over low heat and add milk; simmer 1 minute to heat through. Remove pan from heat and stir in basil. Season to taste with salt. Yields about 3/4 cup per serving.
