1 onion (small to medium), small dice
1-2 tbsp olive oil, depending on the size of your pan
2 – 4 cloves garlic (depending on your taste), minced
@ 1 cup wine. I don’t measure wine. Red is better, white is fine.
1 28-ounce can of whole tomatoes, crushed by hand. Or pre-crushed tomatoes for a smooth texture. I use Muir Glen organic when I don’t buy San Marzano.
Salt, pepper, balsamic vinegar to taste.
I preheated my pan to low, and started with a small onion, but medium is fine. Small dice.
This is one of the only occasions I will cook with extra virgin olive oil because I keep the pan on low the whole time and want the olive oil flavor. I also never measure oil. Oil and I get on much better that way. Just enough to cover the bottom of the pan.
