Why I Love This Recipe

heavily adapted from Cooking Light

Ingredients You'll Need

1 teaspoon olive oil

1 cup chopped onion

4 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 cup dry red wine or 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon dried basil

2 tablespoons tomato paste

1/2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning

1/2 teaspoon oregano

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

a few shakes of red pepper

large can tomato puree


Heat oil in a saucepan or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; sauté 5 minutes. Stir in wine and next 6 ingredients (wine through tomatoes), and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, and cook, uncovered, about 15 minutes. (The longer you simmer the better it becomes.)
