Ingredients
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil leaves
  • 2 (28-ounce) cans whole Italian plum tomatoes, with their juices
  • 3 whole heads roasted garlic, cloves removed from peels
Directions
  • In a large saucepan saute the onion in the olive oil over medium-high heat until soft and lightly golden, 4 to 6 minutes. Add the minced garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the tomato paste, salt, balsamic vinegar, hot sauce, crushed red pepper, Italian seasoning, and basil, and cook for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes, crushing with your hands as you place them in the pan, and their juices. Stir to combine well and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a slow simmer and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  • Add the roasted garlic cloves and stir to combine. Continue to simmer for 30 to 45 minutes longer, or until the flavors have come together.

  • Serve over pasta of choice.
