Simple Tomato Sauce

So I finally made the sauce for my fresh home-made pasta and I decided to make a simple tomato sauce to go with it. This sauce is very easy and can be modified in a lot of ways, meat or seafood and other vegetables can be added to it, but I preferred it this way with just the tomatoes and the basil.
Crushed Tomatoes 400 grams can
Garlic 3 cloves, crushed and minced
Onions, 1 whole, minced
Basil leaves, fresh, chiffonade
Olive Oil, 1tablespoon
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat pan with oil over medium heat. Saute onions and garlic until onions are translucent and mixture is fragrant. Add the crushed tomatoes. Simmer for 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add fresh basil towards the end of cooking. Serve over cooked pasta. Garnish with basil.
