When life gives you tomatoes, you make Marinara

By this point I am swamped with tomatoes, and man, are they are good!
I decided to make Marinara sauce.
I had a purple onion so I used that and 2 heads of Stillman's garlic from the CSA. Their garlic is so sweet and tender, it just makes the dish you are using it in that much better.

I sauteed them in some olive oil until soft.

Then I added the chopped tomatoes and let them melt away.

Last, I added fresh, chopped basil and let it simmer for 5 more minutes - just enough time for the basil to release it's fragrance.

YUM; I froze half of it. It was good and it will be nice to have it mid winter when the tomatoes suck.
