Weaver's Traditional Pizza Sauce

I know everyone has a certain pizza sauce they like, but this is one of our HOMEMADE favorites! :) You at least have to try it... it's probably the best I've ever had, you can even use it for spaghetti!

4 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
2 TBSP minced fresh garlic
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
2 cups salsa, mild
2 tsp dried oregano
2 tsp dried basil (you can use Italian Seasoning to substitute for both of these)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
4 TBSP (usually 1 small can) tomato paste

In a medium sauce pan, saute' garlic, and onions in olive oil until tender.
Add seasonings and continue cooking a few more minutes.
Stir in salsa and then tomato paste.
Simmer on low heat for about 10 minutes.
Let cool for a few minutes.

Spread over pizza, or cover spaghetti.
Will cover 2 large pizzas, or one large pot of spaghetti. :)
