Ingredients

  • 2-3

    tablespoons olive oil

  • 1

    large onion, finely diced

  • 4

    cloves garlic, minced

  • ½

    cup strong red wine (like chianti)

  • 2

    28-oz cans good quality crushed tomatoes (like Tutto Rosso or San Marzano)

  • approx. ½ cup finely chopped fresh Italian parsley, basil, thyme, and/or oregano

  • 2

    teaspoons salt

  • 1

    teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • ½

    teaspoon crushed red pepper (or to taste)

Directions

Saute onions in olive oil on medium-high heat until browned and translucent, approx. 10 minutes. Add minced garlic and saute for another minute. Add wine, stir to life any browned onions/garlic from bottom of the pot, and simmer for a couple of minutes. Add tomatoes, half of the herbs, salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper. Stir, and let simmer on low heat for 3 hours, stirring and tasting occasionally. Add seasoning as needed. If sauce is looking too thin, leave lid ajar for a while. During the last 10 minutes of cooking, add rest of the herbs.
