    1. Place a dutch oven or heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat. Add the oil, then once hot, add the diced onion. Sauté the onions until they're soft and translucent.

    3. Add the crushed tomatoes, vegetable broth, basil, salt and pepper. Raise the heat to high to bring this mixture to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and cover the pot. Cook for 25 minutes.
