  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large yellow onion finely diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¾ cup white wine
  • 5 15-ounce cans tomato sauce
  • 3 ounces tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon italian seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon pure ground black pepper


  • In a large sauce pot, heat the olive oil on medium high heat. Sauté onions until translucent, adding garlic half way through the cooking process (about 3 minutes). Season with kosher salt.
  • Stir in white wine (be cautious of steam).
  • Add tomato sauce, tomato paste, pepper and italian seasoning. Stir to incorporate tomato paste and spices.
  • Reduce heat to low and simmer 20-30 minutes, or at the very least until the alcohol in the white wine is cooked off.


  • Allow to cool before storing.
  • Follow proper instructions if canning sauce.
