  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup onion diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • cans diced tomatoes blended to desired consistency
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ¼ cup fresh basil finely chopped {or 1 teaspoon dried basil}
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • Pinch of rosemary
  • Pinch of thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • In a large skillet, sauté onion in olive oil over medium heat until onions are tender and translucent. Add garlic and continue to cook for about a minute.
  • Pour in blended tomatoes and stir. Bring to a bubble.
  • Add in the rest of the ingredients, stir, and allow to simmer for about 20-30 minutes or until sauce has deepened in color and thickened slightly. If your sauce thickens too much, add a bit of water or broth to thin it out.
  • Set aside until ready to use.
