Heat olive oil and butter over medium heat in a heavy frying pan (preferably one that you can use later as a serving dish). Sauté the onions and garlic until soft and translucent but not brown. Add tomatoes, wine, half the parsley, oregano, basil and seasonings. Boil uncovered until sauce thickens.

    I have made it without the wine too - and it is GOOD!! I am glad you enjoyed it. I like adding a couple kalamata olives to the plate for a treat.
