Heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan.

Add the onion and garlic and allow to cook about 5-7 minutes or until the onion is translucent.

Add the tomatoes with their juice (if you are using fresh tomatoes, add a couple tablespoons of water), then season with salt and pepper.

Toss in the basil or parsley.

Cook the sauce on low heat for 20 - 30 minutes (Or longer if you have more time, just make sure to stir it once in a while so it doesn't burn - the longer the cooking time, the better the flavor you will achieve!)
