Eric's Basic Red Sauce
Start with plenty of onions sauteed in olive oil, add chopped garlic. Add roasted red pepper, chopped, pitted Kalamata olives, optionally add capers, increase heat! Add fresh herbs - including some ground anise seed- when it is sticky and just starting to burn, deglaze with red wine, watch out for splashing and boiling, a possible safety hazard. Reduce the wine mixture a bit then stir in canned marinara sauce. Can be used on pasta, greens, sauteed eggplant, etc. or combine all.
