There are a lot of Italians in this world and I’d say just about every single one makes their gravy (tomato sauce) a little differently. If you are looking for traditional check out my Tomato Sauce Recipe. If you want to try something is a slightly different texture, try this rustic version. It’s delish! It’s fabulous served over pasta, polenta, or quinoa, and is also fab on some toasts as a super easy appetizer.
Rustic Tomato Sauce
What you’ll need:
1 medium onion, halved and sliced
1 28oz. can of whole san marzano tomatoes
3 cloves of garlic, chopped

In a large frying pan over medium heat, saute the onion in some olive oil and a pinch of salt until soft. Add in the can of tomatoes, stir and let simmer for about 5 minutes. Using a wooden spoon break up the tomatoes. Add the sugar and garlic and simmer another few minutes. Stir in the basil and serve over pasta, polenta, quinoa, etc.
