Easy Tomato Sauce

So much better than the jarred stuff!

28oz can of whole tomatoes

1/4 of an onion, chopped
3-4 garlic cloves
1 tbs extra virgin olive oil

1 tbs balsamic vinegar
1 tsp thyme
salt
pepper
crushed red pepper (optional)


In a medium pot heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, cook for 5-7 minutes. 

Add the can of tomatoes with the juice,  and smash them with a potato masher or have fun and crush them with you hands (before they get hot.)

Add the balsamic vinegar, thyme, salt, and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce to low and simmer for 30 minutes.

I like my tomato sauce tangy but if it is too tangy for your taste, add just a dash of sugar. This makes a chunky sauce, puree it in a blender for a smoother sauce.
