A Simple Tomato Sauce

After numerous attempts at making the perfect tomato sauce, and with the help of a friend, I finally have a recipe that never fails. Enjoy.

What you need:

1/2 yellow onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, diced
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
28 oz can crushed tomatoes
1/2 large zucchini, diced (optional)
1 shredded carrot (optional)
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt

In a medium size pan on medium heat, sauté onions and garlic for 15-20 minutes or until onions are clear and golden. If using zucchini and carrot, add to pan and sauté until soft (around 7 minutes). Add a pinch of oregano and parsley to the vegetables and stir. Add the can of crushed tomatoes and 1 tsp of salt. Let the sauce simmer for 30 minutes on medium heat, stirring occasionally. During the last 5 minutes, add the sugar. The longer you cook tomato sauce, the thicker it will become. If its not as thick as you like after 30 minutes, give it another 10 minutes for the perfect tomato sauce.
