2 tbsp oil
1 medium diced yellow onion
2 cloves garlic minced
1 28oz can crushed tomatoes
1 28oz can tomato sauce
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp dried basil and oregano, or fresh if you like
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
Heat oil on med-high in pot.
Add onions and cook about 2-3 min stirring frequently
Add garlic and cook for another min
Add rest of ingredients, lower temp to simmer.
Cook minimum of 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season to your liking.
You can also add veggies if you want a garden sauce, or grated parmesan for a cheese marinara, or cooked for a meat sauce. I like to add cooked meatballs into the sauce while it simmers.
