Ingredients

  • 1

    can whole peeled tomatoes in juice - (28 oz)

  • 1

    small white or sweet onion minced

  • 1

    garlic clove peeled, minced

  • 3

    fresh basil leaves - (to 4)

  • 1

    teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1

    pinch salt

  • 1

    pinch freshly-ground black pepper

  • 1

    pinch sugar (optional)

  • 2

    tablespoons olive oil to saute

Directions

Empty the contents of the tomato can in a mixing bowl and coarsely crush the tomatoes with a fork or your hands, leaving them just a little chunky. In a heavy bottom 2-quart saucepot, add the olive oil, over a medium-high flame and heat a little. Add the onions and sauté until slightly translucent. Add the garlic and sauté about a minute until golden. Quickly add the crushed tomatoes to the mix. Stir well and bring to a simmer. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and add the fresh basil and oregano. You can add a touch of sugar if desired or if tomatoes are tart. Simmer on a low flame, stirring often for at least 15 minutes. If not using right away, cool down and store in airtight container in the refrigerator, up to 1 week. This recipe yields about 3 cups, or enough for 2 large pies.
