1 small onion, chopped
2-3 cloves garlic, chopped
¾ l boiled tomatoes (or a large can of peeled tomatoes)
chives, thyme and parsley leaves, chopped
1-2 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper
½ teaspoon sugar (optional)


Simmer the onion and garlic in olive oil over low heat. Add the tomatoes and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes. Add the chopped herbs and season with salt and pepper to taste. Should the sauce taste sour, add the sugar. Cook over low heat for another 10 to 20 minutes.
Enjoy the sauce by itself or poured over Italian-style meatballs.
