Marinara Sauce

This marinara sauce is super easy.  Whether you are making chicken parmesan, spaghetti and meatballs, baked ziti, this is the perfect sauce.  This is my go to sauce specially when I'm running behind and I just want to throw something together.  I'll make some meatballs and boil some pasta and I'm done.  In less than 40 minutes I have a full meal on the table.

A good pasta sauce does not have to simmer all day. 

1/4 cup olive oil
2 garlic cloves minced
1 med size onion chopped
2 bay leaves
2-28 oz cans tomatoes, crushed
bunch of fresh basil
1 tbsp of sugar
salt and pepper to taste

Coat a saucepan with 1/4 cup of olive oil on medium heat, add the garlic, onions and bay leaves. Cook for about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, fresh basil, sugar and salt and pepper.  Cook for about 15 minutes until the sauce is nice and thick. Simmer and keep warm.
