INGREDIENTS  for 6 servings

1 Onion, peeled and cut in 2 parts

4 cups of tomato puree or, if you prefer it less smooth,

1 teaspoon of salt,

1 tbsp of Extra Virgin Olive Oil

 METHOD

. Put everything in a pot, except the EVOO, and turn on the stove at medium heat.

. The onion needs to be soaked in the tomato sauce.

. Stir here and there, so the sauce doesn’t stick at the bottom of the pot or it burns.

. When it starts boiling, low the heat at the minimum and let it simmer until the onion becomes soft.

. Turn off the heat, add the EVOO and check if you need extra salt.

. Your sauce is ready to be served with some pasta.

Enjoy!
