Tomato sauce

Sauces and Spreads,

Start with 1/2 c. crushed tomatoes over medium-high heat. Reduce and caramelize, adding water as needed, until you have a rich dark red paste.

Add garlic and butter, sautee until garlic is softened. Deglaze with wine, then add tomatoes and bay, reduce heat, and simmer for 1 hour. Stir in basil and remove from heat.
