Serves: 4Hands-on: 10 minutesTotal: 30 minutesDifficulty: Easy
- 1 can (28 oz.) Italian plum tomatoes, with juice
- ½ cup diced onion

- In a 2-quart saucepan, combine the tomatoes, onion, garlic, basil, parsley, and oregano. Place over medium heat and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to moderately low and simmer until the liquid is reduced by half, about 20 minutes. Season with salt. Remove from the heat.
