Tomato Sauce

recently i made whole wheat pasta, and it was so delish i had to make tomato sauce to go with it. so i came up with this. you need:
EVOO (to drizzle)
1/2 onion, minced
2 cloves of garlic
21 oz can crushed tomatoes
2 celery stalks
basil leaves
balsamic vinaigrette
brown sugar
take a medium soup pot, and drizzle EVOO along the bottom at high heat. add the minced onion and grate the garlic cloves into the pot. let cook on high heat for 4 mins, occasionally stirring so the onions do not burn on the bottom. then reduce the heat, and add the can of crushed tomatoes. if you do not reduce the heat, tomato will pop up at you and burn your arms. let the canned tomatoes simmer and chop the celery stalks into small chunks and add to the pot along with a handful of ripped up basil leaves. add a tablespoon of brown sugar and stir. let the sauce simmer for 15 mins and then stir into pasta. enjoy!
