This is a very simple, versatile tomato sauce. You can dress it up anyway you like, but try it before you mess with it, you might like it... By processing the onions, you get all the juice from them, they cook up quickly and your eyes do not cry as much. If I do not have fresh basil, I use the same amount of fresh oregano (which is a perennial where I live). I love to brown but under cook 5 Italian sausages, finish cooking them in the sauce for about 15 minutes and serve with pasta and some parmesan or romano cheese. Enjoy!
