What is the secret to the perfect tomato sauce?

Today I gift you with a secret of mine !
“The secret of a great tomato sauce is actually a good red onion “
To make a perfect fresh tomato sauce you need :


1 Chop the half of the onion and put in the pan with one spoon of olive oil , the clove of garlic ( a bit crushed ) and cook gently for 5 minutes

•15 ripe cherry tomatoes
•2 spoons of extra virgin olive oil
•1 red onion and a clove of garlic
•2 “twist “of fresh crushed black pepper
•4 leaves of fresh basil
•A bit of sea salt

2 Cut the cherry tomatoes in four and add them to the onion

3 the other half of onion put now to cook together ( the half red onion will suck the acidity of the tomatoes and release a bit of sweetness to the sauce )

4 Cover and cook gently for 10 – 15 minutes until soft ( add the basil in the last couple of minutes)

Adjust with salt pepper and the other spoon of extra virgin olive oil .
This sauce can be used for pasta but also for others recipes.
