  • Heat olive oil in a large, deep pot over medium heat. Stir strained tomatoes, onion, Parmesan cheese, basil, garlic, and red wine together in the pot with the oil; season with salt and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook at a simmer until thickened, about 25 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can add your favorites to make this your 'signature sauce,' such as Italian sausage, meatballs, ground beef, peppers, etc. You can make it different every time!

If time doesn't permit, canned tomatoes will work nicely in place of the fresh.
