Heat the olive oil in a 6 quart saucepan over medium heat. Brown the garlic. Add the onions and saute until they are transparent. Add crushed tomatoes, tomato paste blended with water, basil, pepper, and salt. Simmer for 30 minutes over low heat stirring often.
I wanted a tomato sauce without the additives and salt in the commercial ones so I gave this one a try on my cabbage rolls. Turned out great. I'll be using it from now on when I need a tomatoe sauce.
