1 tsp minced garlic
3 (28 oz) cans Italian plum tomatoes, drained
2 tsp dried basil
1 1/2 tsp dried crushed red pepper
2 cups canned low-salt chicken broth

Directions:
Heat 3 tablespoons oil in heavy large pot over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms, onion, and garlic; saute until 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.)

Preheat oven to 375. Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until tender but still firm to bite. Drain well.

Return pasta to same pot. Toss with 3 tablespoons oil. Pour sauce over and toss to blend. Mix in Havarti cheese. Transfer pasta to 13x9x2-inch glass baking dish. Sprinkle with olives, then Parmesan.

Bake until pasta is heated through, about 30 minutes. Sprinkle with basil.
