    2       ts           Olive oil, cold pressed
      1/2                Onion -- finely chopped
      1/2   ts           Basil
      1/2   ts           Oregano
      1/2   ts           Marjoram
    2       lg           Garlic cloves -- chopped
    6       oz           Tomato paste
   28       oz           Tomatoes, canned or fresh
    1       c             -- water
                         Salt and pepper
   1. Place the oil in a large saucepan. Add the onion,
   basil, oregano, and marjoram and cook, covered, over
   medium heat until the onion is golden. Add the garlic
   and cook for 1 minute more. Remove the onion and
   garlic and reserve. 2. Place the tomato paste in the
   same saucepan and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes,
   stirring constantly.
   3. Add the canned tomatoes and mash wiht a fork or
   potato masher. If you prefer a creamier sauce, blend
   the tomatoes in a blender until smooth. Add the water
   and bring to a fast boil.
   4. Reduce the heat. Add the reserved onion, garlic,
   salt and pepper. Simmer, covered, for 1 hour, stirring
   Note: for a thick sauce (if sauce is to be used for
   pizza), cook, uncovered, during the last half hour,
   stirring often to prevent burning.
