Homemade Tomato Sauce

By: http://www.vrg.org

Category: Main Dishes - Pasta

This recipe is suitable for a: vegetarian diet.



1/4 cup water

1 onion, chopped

3 large cloves garlic, minced

3 cups canned or fresh chopped tomatoes with juice

One 6-ounce can tomato paste

1 Tablespoon red wine vinegar (use balsamic if you have it)

1 Tablespoon sweetener of your choice

2 teaspoons dried oregano

1 teaspoon dried basil

1 teaspoon dried thyme

Salt and black pepper to taste



In a large saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add onion, and cook, stirring frequently, until water has evaporated. Add just enough water to moisten the bottom of the pan, and continue to cook, adding water as necessary and stirring often, until onions are carmelized (about 20 minutes). Add garlic, tomatoes, and tomato paste, and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes. If necessary, add a little water to thin the sauce as it cooks. Add remaining ingredients, and simmer 5 more minutes.
