- 3 Tablespoons EVOO
- 1.5 cups diced yellow onion
- 8 medium garlic cloves - smashed
- Three 28 oz cans of fire roasted diced tomatoes (he recommends Muir Glen)
- 1 Tablespoon chopped oregano
- 1/4 cup shredded basil
- Salt and Pepper to taste
In a medium-large sauce pan, cook the onions on medium low heat in the EVOO until translucent (about 4 minutes). While they are cooking, you can smash the garlic.
Then, add the tomatoes and simmer for 20 minutes.
It goes great in spaghetti or as a dipping sauce for foods such as fried cheese! Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did! It's great to have homemade items in the freezer that you know where all ingredients came from. Homemade sauces such as this may also have less sugar and less preservatives than what you find on the shelf. Moreover, this is a yummy and easy recipe for those of you needing special diets such as gluten or sugar free.
It's not my typical post, but I hope you enjoy it anyway. :) Cheers!
