Hot and Spicy Tomato Sauce

1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
1 medium onion chopped
2-3 green peppers, halved, seeded, and cut into 1-inch square pieces
1/2 pound hot peppers cut into short, thin, slices
1 can crushed tomatoes
2 fresh tomatoes peeled, chopped and seeded
Small bunch basil leaves

Heat the oil over low to medium heat in a large pan. Add the onion, garlic and green peppers, and allow to sweat for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the hot peppers, and a sprinkle of salt. Cook over low to medium heat for about 20 minutes, or until the peppers have softened and are partially tender. There will still be some liquid left in the pan. Add the tomatoes and the basil leaves. Lower the heat and continue to cook for another 15 minutes, until the peppers are tender. Add additional salt, to taste. Remove from the heat.

Serve over pasta, grilled meats, pizza or frittata
