Sandra's Tomato Sauce

Sandra's Tomato Sauce is the next to the last entry in the sauces category. The only thing left is Game Sauce, for which one needs game, after all. My son's friend Jake, the hunter, might come up with some sort of game bird, depending on what he's up to, and I might be able to make the game sauce sometime.
However, I have to say, Sandra's Tomato Sauce is bland and more or less uninteresting. My husband called the spice requirements "timorous." Even with the added pepping up of more spices, the sauce didn't amount to much. We ate it on spaghetti squash, which is kind of peculiar. It looks like spaghetti but it doesn't taste or feel like spaghetti at all.

Sandra's Tomato Sauce

1/2 cup olive oil
1 large onion, finely chopped
2 two pound three ounce cans tomatoes in tomato puree
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 leaves fresh basil or one half teaspoon dried basil
1 sprig fresh oregano or one-quarter teaspoon dried oregano

1. Heat the oil in a saucepan and saute the onion in it until tender. Add the tomatoes and cook uncovered one hour or until well blended.
2. Add the remaining ingredients and cook five minutes.
Makes two quarts
