Recipe for Easy Basic Tomato Sauce

Everyone has their own tomato sauce recipe (or store bought) that they can count on time after time.  Here is my homemade sauce.

Ingredients for about 1 ½ cups of sauce:
238 calories, 15 grams fat, 26 grams carbs, 4 grams protein for entire recipe
3 medium tomatoes, roughly chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 TBSP olive oil
1 cup vegetable broth
2 TBSP dried Italian seasoning

Saut√© the onion and garlic in the olive oil over medium heat until softened (not browning). 

Add tomatoes, broth, and seasoning and cook covered over low heat, just simmering, for 45 minutes. 

Use in recipe, or cool and refrigerate, covered, for up to 1 week.
