8 plum or sauce tomatoes, seeded and chopped
2 medium red peppers, seeded and chopped
1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
4 small or 2 large garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tbsp fresh basil, minced or 1 tsp dried basil
Fresh Italian parsley to taste
When oil is warm, add garlic and onions.
Cook for 30 seconds - 1 minute - so flavors fuse but garlic doesn't brown.
Add tomatoes and peppers, oregano and dried basil (if using fresh basil, stir that in at the end).
Bring heat up to medium to medium high and cook for 5 - 10 minutes until the vegetables blend and cook together.
When sauce is done, stir in fresh basil and/or fresh, chopped Italian parsley to taste. Stir until fresh herbs wilt.
Serve and enjoy! Freezes well, too.
