I think that every Italian family has its own marinara recipe. In our case, we have several variations that can include white or red wine and contains onions or garlic or both. My mother occasionally makes a sweet marinara using lots of sliced onions and no garlic. She learned this from a neighbor from Apuglia. This recipe is one of my favorites and I hope it becomes one of yours, too.
Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the garlic and onion. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for 7-10 minutes or until the garlic and onions are lightly browned but not burned. Add the remaining ingredients and stir well to mix. Cover and cook at a medium boil, stirring occasionally, for about 20-25 minutes or until the sauce reduces slightly. Taste for seasonings.
