In a large pot, sauté onion and garlic in olive oil until tender. Add basil, crushed tomatoes and tomato paste. Add sugar and salt to taste and simmer for several minutes until ready to serve. You may serve this sauce with your favorite pasta or make pasta of your own (recipe to follow). This recipe is reproduced just as it was given to us. It results in a very tomato-ey sauce. You can probably cut out at least one can of the tomatoes and still have a very tasty sauce. You may also add a pound of cooked ground beef or your favorite sautéed vegetable like zucchini or mushrooms. If you like seafood, add steamed clams or shrimp. As always, top with grated Parmesan or Romano cheese.
