Tomato Sauce

This is a simple recipe to make great tomato sauce for any tomato based pasta.
- 4 or 5 tomatoes
- 1 white onion
- 2 cloves of garlic (smashed)
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt (you can add more if you like...)
- some pepper
- a sprinkling of sugar
- 2 tablespoon olive oil
- Italian spices (thyme, basil, whatever you like.. we use some thyme and basil.)

Chop up the tomatoes and onions, toss in all the condiments. Bake in the oven for about 40min. You might want to turn the tomatoes every now and then to make sure they don't burn (at least for my convection oven, we need to do that...).

After that, viola! You've got a really tasty tomato sauce to eat with your pasta. For this meal, my brother had some fish and squid stir fried in this yummy sauce to make our own seafood marinara. It's a light and comforting meal to eat after a series of unhealthy meals (read: BBQ with lots of chicken nuggets and sausages. :P)
