Tonight, I ran out of tomato sauce for our spaghetti and meatballs. But I always keep crushed tomatoes on hand, so it’s easy to have fresh tomato sauce quickly! This is so tasty and even better if you cook the meatballs in it!
Homemade Tomato Sauce
- 4 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 large onion, chopped
- 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
- 3 leaves fresh basil leaves, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
- In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, saute onions in oil until golden brown. Add crushed tomatoes, basil, garlic, salt and pepper. Let the sauce come to a boil, lower heat to low and stir occasionally for 20 minutes. Remove from heat, serve and enjoy!
