2 cans (28 oz. can) crushed tomatoes – I buy no salt or sometimes Hunts natural
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
fresh or dried basil to taste
fresh or dried oregano to taste
1/2- cup red wine ( Marsala or Malbec work great)
2 tablespoons butter
salt & pepper
raw sugar (optional)
crushed red pepper (if you prefer spice)
- Add oil to pan with garlic and onion
- Saute for 2 minutes
- Add tomatoes and all spices
- Add wine ( about 1/4 cup)
- Add butter ( this takes some of the acid away)
Simmer for an hour or longer.
Serve over pasta or with any recipe that calls for marinara sauce.
Vegan version: add soy margarine instead of butter
