Artichoke and Olive Pasta Sauce

My family loves pasta but the kids really dislike pre-canned sauces. Over the years I've been able to whip up a quick, tasty sauce from a few things I always have on hand.

1 can olives

1 can artichoke hearts

handful of chopped basil

2 cloves garlic, chopped

1 can stewed tomatoes, blended in food processor until smooth

Saute garlic, olives and artichokes in olive oil for a few minutes, being careful not to burn the garlic. Then add basil and cook for another minute.

Add the pureed tomatoes and simmer for about 5 minutes or so. Mix into cooked pasta of your choice and enjoy with a big salad!
