Easy, delicious pasta sauce.

This is a ridiculously easy, simple, fast dinner, but it is so delicious and savory. It's a homemade pasta sauce that a couple of my friends developed and that I tweaked to my (and my Italian boyfriend's)liking.

one small onion, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 can tomato paste
1 can diced or crushed tomatoes
half of a 12 oz. jar of marinated mushrooms (drained)
a small jar of artichoke hearts, drained
oregano, sweet basil, and salt and pepper to taste

In a saucepan, sautee the onion and garlic over high heat with a little olive oil until almost brown. Turn the heat down to medium and add the artichoke hearts and mushrooms. Cook for a couple more minutes. Add the tomatoes and paste, then the spices, and stir. Cook for about 10 minutes.

Serve over un-egg noodles or any other kind of pasta you desire. The beauty of this recipe is that it is so hearty that it's perfect for when you're really hungry, but lack the motivation to go all out cooking, and ALSO, everything required to cook this is non-perishable and comes in jars or cans.
