(All-Purpose Italian) Onion-Based Tomato Sauce

(All-Purpose Italian) Onion-Based Tomato Sauce

My specialty is Italian cuisine, and I'd introduce an authentic (onion-based) tomato sauce recipe. It goes well with pasta, pizza, or tacos.

Ingredients: 3 servings.

Canned whole tomatoes
400 g
1, medium
Olive oil
1 tablespoon
Bay leaf
1 teaspoon


1. In a skillet over low heat, add the minced onion and olive oil, then sauté for 10-15 minutes.
2. When the onion turns golden brown, turn off the heat.
3. Pour in the tomatoes (whole tomatoes crushed by hand, or canned diced tomatoes) in the skillet and cook over medium heat.
4. Bring it to a boil, add the bay leaf and salt, then reduce heat to low and simmer it for 7-8 minutes. Turn off the heat.
5. Once it cools down, blend the sauce in a blender until smooth.

Story Behind this Recipe

Previously, I posted a garlic-based tomato sauce, but after making many different kinds of sauces, I felt that this sauce is also pretty good.
