Deanne is on a diet that abjures almost all fats, including butter and oil. This rules out a lot of store-bought ingredients. It also makes cooking difficult. She likes pasta and pizza (without cheese), so I messed around a bit and came up with this recipe for a tomato sauce to put on said dishes. We like it, and it's easy to make.
Basic Red Sauce
In a pot, put:
2 28-oz cans of unsalted tomatoes (I use 1 can of crushed, and 1 of diced); 2 medium onions, chopped; 4 cloves garlic, minced; 8 oz mushrooms, chopped (optional); salt to taste; basil, oregano, thyme to taste (be generous).
Simmer for as long as you can. Makes about two quarts.
