SERVINGS: 4 cups

1 T olive oil
1 cup yellow onion, chopped
6 garlic cloves, minced
½ cup Jam Jar Sweet Shiraz

2 T tomato paste
2 T flat-leaf parsley, chopped
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano

Heat oil in a large skillet. Sauté the onion over medium heat until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 more minute.

Add the wine to the pan and bring to high heat, scraping up the brown bits. Continue to cook until liquid has evaporated to 2 tablespoons, about 3 minutes.
