The Tomato Sauce Recipe
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 32 cans crushed tomatoes ( see note)
sea salt and fresh ground black pepper
4 fresh basil leaves
2 dried bay leaves
In a large pot heat olive oil , add onion and garlic and saute until soft and translucent about 3 minutes. season with salt and pepper. Add tomatoes basil and bay leaves and simmer covered over low heat for about 1 hour until it has thickened up. Remove bay leaves and throw away. Taste sauce for seasonings and adjust if you need to. Any extra sauce can be frozen.
Note : I like a very smooth sauce so I put my tomatoes in a blender before making the sauce. You can also do this after the sauce is cooked.
