Basic Red Sauce

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.
