Pin It

Serve over your favorite pasta. Absolutely delicious and so easy to make!

2 tablespoons olive oil ¾ teaspoon white sugar
1 onion, diced
¼ teaspoon dried oregano
1 clove garlic, minced
¼ teaspoon salt
1 (14.5 ounce) can Italian-style diced tomatoes, undrained
⅛ teaspoon ground black pepper
½ cup Longmont Dairy heavy cream
1 tablespoon dried basil leaves
1 tablespoon Country Cream butter

Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Sauté onion until just tender, then add the garlic, making sure it does not burn. Add the tomatoes, basil, sugar, oregano, salt and pepper. Boil uncovered until most of the liquid evaporates, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat, stir in heavy cream and butter and simmer for 5 more minutes.

For a heartier meal, add Rome’s Meatballs or sliced Italian Sausage while the sauce is simmering.
