I have a picky eater in my house. My husband. He isn't a fan of jarred pasta sauce, unless it's the expensive kind. Geez!
So I have been experimenting with own. This recipe cost me about $1.75 and tastes amazing.
What you'll need:
5 good size Roma tomatoes peeled (refer here)
2 tbsp minced garlic
1/2 diced onion
1/4 cup fresh basil or 1 tbsp dried
2 tbsp sugar
1 pinch kosher salt
1 can tomato paste
2 tbsp white wine
Optional: carrots, spinach any vegetable you can think up. This is a great way to hide vegetables.
In a pan heat up your olive oil and add your onions. **I really recommend a cast iron skillet or Dutch oven for a better caramelization. If you don't have this, no biggie.
Dice those peeled tomatoes and toss them in the pan with you basil let your tomatoes and onions cook for about 10 minutes then add your white wine, tomato paste and sugar. Stir, stir, stir. Then add your garlic and kosher salt and let simmer about 8 minutes.
