Hi, I'm Parker 👋
Instead of buying me a coffee, check out the best coffee I've ever had (And it's instant!)

In a saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat.
Add onions and cook 4-5 minutes until they are soft and golden.
Add garlic and sauté, being careful not to burn.
Add tomato paste, and stir well. Add crushed tomatoes, including the juice in case you are using canned tomatoes.
Add brown sugar, dried oregano, dried bay leaves, salt, and pepper.
Cover and bring to a low simmer for 20-30 minutes.
Finally, remove from the heat, add fresh basil, and stir well. Remove the bay leaves.
Adjust the seasoning if you think it is necessary. You can use this delicious sauce in your favorite recipes, or you can pour the sauce into a mason jar and keep it in the fridge for about 3 or 4 days, or you can freeze for months.
