  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Add onions and garlic. Cook, stirring often, for 8-10 minutes until very soft
  2. Increase heat to medium-high. Stir in tomato paste. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium.
  3. Add tomatoes and sugar. Using a wooden spoon, break up the whole tomatoes by pressing tomatoes against the side of the pan.

  5. Alternatively, spoon the sauce into airtight containers and refrigerate for 1 week or freeze until required

This sauce, its great. I blended for my homemade pizza, I have it with cannellini beans and baby spinach, with kidney beans, great topping sauce for boiled potatoes, peas, any veggie really and you can make your own hot sauce for your doritos, just add some chopped jalapenos and roasted cupsicum. Thanks for sharing!
