1 onion, chopped (1 cup)

6 cloves garlic, minced

1 cup oil-free marinara sauce
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
8 to 10 fresh basil leaves, chopped
Heat an extra-large skillet over medium. Add the first five ingredients (through thyme); cook 10 minutes, stirring often and adding water, 1 to 2 Tbsp. at a time, as needed to prevent sticking.
