Tomato sauce is a weeknight dinner go-to, especially if you have little ones at home. What’s great about it is that it’s so easy to make, can be made ahead, and can be frozen in portions. Plus, you often have much of what you need at home already. Be sure to use high quality tomatoes for the best tasting sauce. Since this is a basic recipe, it can be adapted to your preference; try adding minced meat, sausage, or other vegetables, like bell pepper and zucchini to make it your own.
Mince the onion and garlic, and dice the tomato. Heat some oil in a frying pan, then sauté the garlic and onion until translucent. Add the tomatoes, then the sugar and salt and pepper to taste. Stir in canned tomatoes and bring to simmer. Cook for approx. 10 min., then add chopped basil and season to taste. Buon Appetito!
