1. Pour tomatoes into a large bowl and crush with your hands. Pour 1 cup water into can and slosh it around to get tomato juices. Reserve.
2. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the oil. When it is hot, add garlic.
3. As soon as garlic is sizzling (NOT BROWN), add the tomatoes, then the reserved tomato water. Add whole chile or red pepper flakes, oregano (if using), and salt. Stir.
4. Place basil sprig, including stem, on the surface (like a flower). Let it wilt, then submerge in sauce. Simmer sauce until thickened and oil on surface is a deep orange, about 15 minutes. (If using oregano, taste sauce after 10 minutes of simmering, adding more salt and oregano as needed.) Discard basil and chile (if using).
