This is from TIm who has the cookbook from Rao's in New York (Frank Pellegrino is the owner and also an actor). I don't care to buy pasta sauce anymore because this is so easy and really satisfying.
1/4C olive oil
1/2 onion diced
2 garlic cloves minced
35 oz plum tomatoes "hand crushed" - I buy 28 diced because that's what there is
4-6 basil leave (not necessary but nice - I usually don't)
splash of red wine or balsamic (my invention)
sauté the onions then simmer everything else for 45 minutes. Don't cheat on the time - it's the most important part!
