Ingredients

  • 1

    Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • 1

    medium yellow or white onion, diced

  • 2

    large cloves garlic, minced

  • 1/3

    cup red wine (optional)

  • 1

    28 oz can fire-roasted diced tomatoes plus their juices

  • 1

    8 oz can tomato sauce

  • 1

    rounded Tbsp tomato paste

  • 1

    tsp honey

  • 1/2

    tsp Kosher salt

  • 1/4

    tsp freshly ground black pepper

  • 2

    tsp dried oregano

  • 1

    tsp dried basil

  • 1/2

    tsp red pepper flakes

Directions

Heat about olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add in the onions and saute until tender and translucent, about 5 minutes, stirring often. Add in the garlic and saute until fragrant, about 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Add in the rest of the ingredients, and bring to a gentle boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer sauce for about 1 hour. Sample the sauce throughout the simmering time and adjust seasonings to taste. Leave sauce chunky, or blend until smooth using an immersion blender (or regular blender).
