 ¼ c red wine
2 (28oz) cans crushed tomatoes

3 oz. parmesan cheese
3 tbsp. chopped basil

Heat oil in large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion; cook, stirring frequently until onion is translucent.
Add garlic & tomato paste; cook, stirring constantly for 2-3 minutes – make sure tomato paste doesn’t burn!
Add wine; cook, stirring constantly
