  • 1 can (28 ounces) tomato puree
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh basil

  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • ROASTED VEGETABLES:

Directions

  • 1. In a large saucepan, saute onion in oil until tender; add garlic and cook 1 minute longer. Stir in the tomato puree, sauce and seasonings. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 20-25 minutes or until slightly thickened.
