Tomato Sauce Recipe

Makes 4 cups

2 tablespoons olive oil or butter
1 medium onion, chopped
4 cups chopped fresh tomatoes (or chopped canned tomatoes, drained)
salt and pepper to taste

Heat olive oil in a 12 inch skillet over medium high heat. When olive oil is hot, add onion and saute for a couple of minutes until soft. Add tomatoes and some salt and pepper. Cook over medium high heat, stirring frequently for 15 minutes. The idea is to concentrate the tomatoes by boiling off the liquid. Add salt and pepper when finished cooking.

Puree sauce in a blender if you desire a smoother consistency.

Serve or store in a container for one week or freeze for future use. This sauce freezes well.
