Simple Spaghetti Sauce

Originally uploaded by Simply Frugal

Onion 1/4 C
Garlic cloves 4
Oil 1 Tbsp
Tomato sauce 4 C
Basil 1 Tbsp
Marjoram 2 tsp
Oregano 1 tsp
Thyme 1 tsp
Chop onion fine, and crush garlic.
Heat oil in large saucepan, add onion, and saute 5 minutes. Add garlic and saute 3 minutes more.
Add tomato sauce, basil, marjoram, oregano, and thyme. Simmer for 20 minutes.

I find the flavors blend better if the sauce is allowed to sit for a few hours, or even overnight, and then reheated.

It's also a great crockpot recipe, left on low for 5-6 hours. Add the meatballs just before serving.
