½ medium Spanish onion, sliced
4 cloves garlic, sliced
1 can (28oz/796ml) San Marzano tomatoes
Leaves from 1 bunch basil
1 tsp cracked black pepper
1. Sweat the onions in the oil until wilted. Add the garlic and sweat from another 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes, half the basil (on the stem) and the pepper; cover and simmer for 60 mins.
