Amanda-Lynns Killer Marinara

What you need: 

2 16 ounce cans chopped tomatoes
1 onion, minced
2-8 cloves of garlic (for most people 4 will do)
2 tablespoons tomato paste
3/4 cup water
2 bay leaves
1/2 to 1 teaspoon dried oregano
about three big pinches dried thyme
2 tablespoons chopped FRESH basil
a miniscule dab of olive oil
salt and pepper

What you do: 

In a big saucepan or a dutch oven, saute the onion and garlic in the oil (a teaspoon at most). When its good and fragrant (read stinky), add everything else except the fresh basil. Bring to a boil and then bring back down to a simmer and cover it and let it go for fifteen minutes. Come back, take the cover partway off, sniff it (MMMM!!!) and give it five to ten minutes to simmer down before you add the basil, give it a full five minutes uncovered, stick it in the food processor for a smoother sauce.
