This simple tomato sauce requires only 3 ingredients (not counting salt & pepper). Yet you'll get a sensational dish with just one little trick: Using a lot of onions and blending them into the sauce, reduces the sharp, acidic taste of the tomatoes and makes the sauce more balanced and sweet.

Salt to taste

Note: You can also sauté a carrot and a rib of celery in with the onions. This gives the sauce an even sweeter and deeper taste, but it is not necessary.
