Learn how to make a delicious Fresh Tomato Sauce in minutes ... paired with pasta, it's a quick and easy meal!
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
Add onion to skillet and season with a little salt. Cook until onion starts turning golden brown, about 7 minutes.
Stir in garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until it becomes fragrant (about 30 seconds).
Mix in tomatoes. Simmer until tomatoes break down and sauce thickens, about 15 to 20 minutes.
Season sauce to taste with salt. Stir in fresh basil.
While the sauce is simmering, cook pasta in a large pot of well-salted water until al dente. Remove 1/2 cup of pasta water and set aside. Drain pasta.
Add pasta to sauce. Toss, adding just enough of the reserved pasta water to help the sauce coat the pasta evenly.
Serve pasta immediately, topped with additional basil and grated Parmesan, if desired. Enjoy!
