Homemade Tomato Sauce




1/4 cup water
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 cups canned or
freshly chopped tomatoes with juice
1 can (6 oz.) tomato paste
1 tbsp. red wine vinegar (use balsamic if you have it)
1 tbsp. sweetener of your choice
2 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. dried thyme
Salt and black pepper, to taste


In a large saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add onion, and cook, stirring frequently, until water has evaporated. Add just enough water to moisten the bottom of the pan, and continue to cook, adding water as necessary and stirring often, until onions are carmelized (about 20 minutes). Add garlic, tomatoes, and tomato paste, and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes. If necessary, add a little water to thin the sauce as it cooks. Add remaining ingredients, and simmer 5 more minutes.
