      1/4   c            Olive oil
    1       tb           Olive oil
    1       sm           Garlic clove, crushed
      1/4   c            Finely chopped onion
    2                    14 1/2 oz. cans of whole
                         Tomatoes with juice, broken
                         Up, or 3 cups peeled and
                         Chopped fresh tomatoes
                         Salt to taste
                         Freshly ground black pepper
    1       lb           Penne pasta, or other shape
      1/2   c            Chopped fresh basil
                         Grated Parmesan cheese
 
   In a large skillet, heat the 1/4 cup of olive oil over medium heat; add the
   onion and saute until tender (do not brown).  Add the garlic and saute for
   one minute.  Stir in the tomatoes; reduce the heat to medium low and
   simmer,
   stirring occasionally, until the sauce is slightly thickened, about 25
   minutes.  Add the salt and pepper to taste. In a large pot of boiling
   salted
   water, cook the pasta to desired doneness; drain well and place in a large
   bowl.  Stir the tablespoon of olive oil into the sauce, then pour over the
   pasta. Add the basil and toss to blend. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, if
   desired, and serve.
