Basic tomato sauce

December 29, 2012

2 medium onions
3 or 4 cloves of garlic
3 tins of chopped tomatoes
tomato paste
Chicken stock
Fresh basil
Balsamic vinegar
Olive oil
Salt & pepper

put a heavy bottomed sauce pan in medium heat and add a good glug of olive oil in and let it heat. Finely dice onions and slice the garlic as thin as you can and add to the oil. Let the onions cook gently, do not let them colour, you want to take your time with this. You want them to be translucent and soft, about 10-15 mins. Add 2-3 tablespoons of balsamic and cook for a minute or two. Add 3-4 tablespoons of tomato paste and cook for another minute or so. Add tinned tomatoes and stock and let it simmer for 30-45 mins. If it is on the thick side add some more stock
