1/2cupminced white onion
2clovesgarlicpressed through a garlic press
2tablespoonsminced sun-dried tomatoespacked in olive oil
2tablespoonswhite winelike Sauvignon Blanc
1(6 ounce) cantomato paste
kosher saltto taste
black pepperto taste
Heat a large 10-inch skillet over moderate heat. When hot add in olive oil, minced onion with a pinch of salt and sauté until soft.
Add in the garlic, and cook for 30 seconds.
Add in the minced sun-dried tomatoes, dried oregano and basil and stir, cooking for 1 minute. The oil and the heat of the pan will soften up the dried herbs.
Pour in the white wine and let that simmer until absorbed.
Add in the tomato paste, sugar and the cup of water and stir until combined. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer the sauce for 10 to 15 minutes before seasoning with kosher salt and black pepper.
Pour in to a jar and cool completely before storing. Use immediately or store it in the fridge for up to 1 week or possibly longer.
