1 tin Chopped tomatoes
1 to 2 rounded teasoon of Onion powder
1 level teaspoon Garlic powder
1 rounded teaspoon Sugar - more if tomatoes are extra tart
S&P

Mix everything together and simmer for about 15 - 30 minutes.

Onion powder and garlic powder are available in little jars in supermarkets or, do as I do and buy much, much cheaper in bulk from butchers wholesalers (they use them as seasoning in sausages) - eBay is the place.

Sounds OK pops but why not use real onion and garlic as I do ?

Three main reasons:

1 Saves the hassle of preparing onions & garlic (I'm not very nimble with a knife these days)

2. The powders give a mature "cooked" flavour without hours of cooking.

3. It's quick.

Also, often I don't want pieces of onion and garlic in the sauce. Using powders avoids this.

Give it a go

Apparently the Italian 's say to keep sauces as simple as possible.

I tended to add the contents of my cupboards  into the sauce, onions, peppers etc.

I have refined it a bit more now and it does taste better sun

I think it's a question of taste and if you feel adventurous. All ways are good though,
