Add oil to saucepan on medium heat. Add onions, when soft and translucent, add garlic for about 1 minute. Then add tomatoes. Cook down into a thick sauce. Add remaining ingredients, stirring occasionally. When sauce comes to a boil lower heat and cook for 20 to 30 minutes. Serve on pasta or rice and garnishes.
