Basic Tomato and Basil Sauce

Not buying the jarred stuff anymore!  This is so much better:

1/8c olive oil
1/2c onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
handful of fresh basil, chopped
salt and pepper, to taste

1.  In a medium size skillet, heat olive oil and add onions and garlic.  Cook just until soft and fragrant.

2.  In a medium size pot, combine crushed tomatoes, basil, olive oil mixture, salt, and pepper.

3.  Simmer on low for about an hour, stirring occasionally.

I used this recipe for baked zucchini subs (sauteed chunky zucchini strips topped with sauce and mozzarella on French bread) – yum!
