Marinara Sauce

This is the recipe for using up odd bits of fresh tomatoes from the garden. It’s great in the middle of winter over pasta, vegetables, meats, whatever.

Brown onions in a small amount of olive oil. Peal tomatoes and squeeze out excess water. Add tomatoes to onions. Add salt, pepper, sugar, fresh basil to taste. Bring to a boil and simmer until desired thickness. Add white wine near the end of the cooking period, if desired.

Freeze in various sizes of containers for use when there aren’t any good fresh tomatoes available.
