Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 1 6 oz. can tomato paste, no salt added
  • 1/4 cup red wine* optional, add for extra flavor
  • 2 cans 28 oz. each crushed tomatoes (I use Muir Glen Organic Crushed Tomatoes with Basil)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt + more to taste if desired
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
Instructions
  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat.
  2. Add onion; cook, stirring frequently, for 5 to 6 minutes, or until onion is soft.
  3. Add garlic and tomato paste; cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute.
  4. Add wine (alternatively you could use water or vegetable broth); cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute.
  5. Add tomatoes, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to low; gently boil, stirring occasionally for 1 hour.
Recipe Notes

*alternatively you could use water or vegetable broth
**I was cooking my sauce while making and cooking meatballs. I continued to cook past the 1 hour mark to further develop the flavor. You can cook on very low heat for up to 6 hours. Cover and stir occasionally. Add about 1/4 cup water or vegetable broth as needed for desired consistency.
