Spaghetti Sauce


3/4 cup chopped onion
5 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup olive oil
2 (28 ounce) cans whole peeled tomatoes
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon white sugar
1 bay leaf
1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
3/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper


In a large saucepan over medium heat, saute onion and garlic in olive oil until onion is translucent. Stir in tomatoes, salt, sugar and bay leaf. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 90 minutes (you can simmer less than this if you would like, 90 minutes is enough time for the flavors to fully merry but if you're on a time crunch, shorten it!). Stir in tomato paste, basil, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and simmer 30 minutes more (again, less is okay, just until the flavors are how you like them). Serve.
