- Heat oil in a saucepan over low heat. Add onion and garlic. Cook and stir until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add passata, basil, and salt. Cover and simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until tomato sauce has thickened, about 20 minutes. Remove garlic halves before serving.
- Cook's Note:
- Instead of the onion you can use 2 shallots. If you have the time, you can simmer the sauce for much longer for a more intense flavor.
