   Time:   :30 Heat the oil in a large pot and saute the
   onion, garlic and seasonings for 5 minutes. Pour the
   tomatoes into a bowl and mash them up, removing any
   hard parts.  Add to the pot with the tomato paste, red
   wine, and butter. Simmer for about 30 minutes,
   stirring frequently.  The sauce should be fairly thick
   when ready.  When you notice the golden oil floating
   on the top of the sauce it has finished cooking.  Now
   check the seasonings and you're done. Very easy! Makes
