This hits the right spot between making an immense amount with fresh tomatoes or just using paste.


  1. In a medium saucepan, over medium- high heat, heat the olive oil, add the chopped onion and garlic, and cook for about 5 minutes, until softened.
  2. Add vinegar, sugar, salt, and mustard. Bring to a boil.
  3. Add the crushed tomatoes, bring to a boil and reduce the heat to medium low. Continue to cook until the sauce has reduced by about half, about 25 minutes.
  4. Remove from the heat and puree in with a stick blender.
