Simple Basic Tomato Sauce
2 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
2 cloves minced garlic
Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and pepper; saute until translucent. Add the garlic and cook and stir another 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, red pepper flakes, and Italian seasoning. Season with salt. Cook until completely heated, another 2 to 3 minutes.
For a smooth sauce, place mixture in your blender or food processor and process until texture that you want.
Makes approximately 3 1/ 2 cups (enough for 4 to 6 servings).
