Servings 4


  • 1 Tbls Butter
  • 1 medium Onion Diced and sauted
  • 2 14.5oz cans Italian Stewed Tomatos
  • 1 tsp Oregano
  • 1 tsp Fresh Basil Finely Chopped
  • 2-3 cloves garlic Pressed
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Pepper *I prefer fresh ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup Broth or White Wine *Personal preference, Veggie or Chicken Broth has wonderful flavor if you prefer not to use Wine.
  • 1 Tbls Sugar *Optional - This helps to take the acid out of the tomatoes if needed.


  • In a large sauce pan over medium/high heat use 1 Tablespoon of butter and saute' onions until clear.
  • Add Stewed Tomatoes, Tomato Paste, Fresh basil, Garlic, Salt and Pepper and broth* and stir to combine.
  • Allow to simmer for 30 minutes
  • Remove from heat and use a hand blender to puree sauce well. The flavors will meld together. If the acid from the tomatoes is too much, use 1 Tbls sugar to help cut the acid.
