My Red

My red sauce was in my 20's a bit complicated and then I realized I could strip it down to a few basic ingredients.

2 cans of crushed tomatoes (hunts is my preference)
2 oz of tomato paste
1 large onion
3 Garlic cloves
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
2 tablespoons of oregano
fresh chopped basil (optional)

Cook the onion for 8 min on medium heat with olive oil. Then add garlic and cook for 3 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients, cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Stir frequently. Once off of the heat add basil.

Its simple but perfect.
