S says this is sort of like bruchetta:

  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • black pepper
  • garlic powder (NOT garlic salt)
  • basil
  • oregano
  • crushed red pepper
  • Red Devil hot sauce
  • red wine vinegar
  • balsamic vinegar
  • butter
  • salt

Dump can o’ tomatoes in small saucepan, heat to simmer.

Add spices & vinegar to taste.  I do about half a tablespoon each of garlic powder, basil, oregano.  A 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes, and a couple splashes of hot sauce.  And a lot of grinds of black pepper.  It’s up to you.  Add a tiny splash of red wine vinegar, and about a tablespoon of balsamic.

Simmer & reduce until it’s mostly just tomatoes in a thick sauce, salt to taste & adjust seasonings, turn off heat, and add 1/2 tablespoon butter and mix until smooth and glossy.
