Basic Red Sauce

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 cup chopped yellow onions (1 medium yellow onion)
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic (2 cloves garlic)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 (28-ounce) can whole peeled tomatoes
  • 1 (15-ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons tomato paste
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar

Directions

  • In a medium, heavy pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onions, garlic, salt, basil, oregano and black pepper, and cook, stirring, until soft, 5 minutes.
  • Place the tomatoes in a large bowl and squeeze to break into small pieces. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, water, and sugar to the pot and stir well. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat.
  • Lower the heat to medium-low, and simmer uncovered for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally with a heavy wooden spoon.
