Very Easy Pasta or Pizza Sauce
1/4 cup olive oil
4 garlic cloves, minced (I use the kind in the jar, already minced)
4 (14 oz.) cans diced or crushed tomatoes. If not crushed, then crush in your food processor.
1/2 onion, chopped finely (if desired)
1 tsp. salt
basil, Italian seasoning, etc. to taste
Saute the onion (if using) and garlic in olive oil. Stir in tomatoes and salt. Simmer until thickened, about 10-15 minutes. Add other seasonings and simmer a couple of more minutes.
