Simply Perfect Pasta Sauce
from Vegetarian Resource Center - Boston, USA

  • Olive oil
  • Onion (and Garlic if desired)
  • (1) 6oz can Tomato Paste
  • (1) 28 or 29oz can Tomato Puree
  • Salt, Pepper, Spices to taste
Turn burner on high and heat olive oil.
Finely chop onion and garlic and saute until brown; lower heat.
Add tomato paste and stir until melted.

Add tomato puree and mix in well.
Once mixed, fill up tomato PASTE can with water and pour in, mixing well again.
Repeat twice more, always mixing the added liquid into the sauce.

Simmer for at least 1/2 hour, and that's it!

The beauty of this recipe is manyfold.
It's almost impossible to mess up; it can be doubled easily - just use the same proportions of paste-puree-water; you can "customize" it to your particular taste by adding your favorite spices;
and you can make it as thin or thick as you want by how long it simmers. Enjoy!
