Here's a great-tasting tomato sauce you can use with stuffed breads, pizza, and pasta. (If you like a thicker sauce, stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons of tomato paste when you add the crushed tomatoes.)
Heat the oil in a medium-size saucepan. Stir in the chopped onion and sauté it for about 8 minutes, until translucent. Stir in the garlic and sauté for another 30 seconds.
Stir the remaining ingredients into the pan, then cover the sauce and bring it back to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Cook the sauce for about 10 minutes, stirring often. Add more salt and pepper to taste. Makes about 4 cups.
