This makes a really big batch that I froze in yogurt containers (about 3 cups in each). I adapted it from this recipe: http://allrecipes.com//Recipe/Pasta-Pomodoro/Detail.aspx

Recipe Ingredients for Marg's Pomodoro Sauce

1/2 cup olive oil
2 onions, chopped
16 cloves garlic, minced
8 cups roma tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
5 cups chicken broth
2 chicken bouillon cubes
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes, ground
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 tbs dry basil (or 4 tbs fresh)

Recipe Directions for Marg's Pomodoro Sauce

  1. Pulse tomatoes, about 8 at a time, in food processor to chop roughly.

  2. Pulse garlic in food processor (after washing it out) until finely minced. Chop onions.

  3. Heat oil in a stock pot, then add onions and garlic and cook until tender, stirring occasionally.

  4. Add tomatoes, vinegar, broth, and bouillon cubes, bring to a boil, turn down heat, and simmer for about 15 minutes.
