This basic sauce makes 6 cups and can be frozen to use anytime. Plus you can add your favorite touches. Like mushrooms, garlic, black olives, carrot, zucchini, browned ground beef, sausage, or turkey, etc.
Saute onion in oil until golden. Add vinegar and tomatoes, forced through a course sieve. Add tomato sauce and paste, basil, salt, parsley and pepper. Simmer until thick (about 1/2 hour).

I use a recipe that is very similar to yours, but to give an Italian flavor I always add oregano and garlic.
This is a great recipe, the kind of basic that moms should make sure all their kids know how to cook. If you can make this you can survive on little money! It is also much more healthy if you have conditions like high blood pressure or diabetes as you can control the amount of salt and sugar which can be very high in prepared sauces. Thanks very much for the post.
