2 teaspoons dried basil

1 1/2 teaspoons dried crushed red pepper

2 cups canned low salt chicken broth

Adapted From:

This hearty and cheesy pasta dish is great when you have to serve a crowd. Pair it with a green salad and a Chianti. Try adding Italian Sausage for a twist.

Heat 3 tablespoons oil in heavy large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; sauteuntil onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Mix in tomatoes, dried basil and crushed red pepper. Bring to boil, breaking up tomatoes with back of spoon. Add broth; bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium; simmer and mixture thickens to chunky sauce and is reduced to 6 cups, stirring occasionally, about 1 hour 10 minutes.

Season with salt and pepper. (Can be made 2 days ahead. Cover and chill. Rewarm over low heat before continuing.)
