  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  1. Sauté onion in hot oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat 3 minutes or until tender. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute. Add tomatoes, kosher salt, and freshly ground pepper to taste. Cook, stirring often, 2 to 3 minutes or until tomatoes start to release their juices. Add wine, and cook, stirring occasionally, 5 to 8 minutes or until almost all liquid has evaporated.
