Heat the oil in a large sauce pan, over medium heat. Add onion and garlic. Saute' until onions are translucent and soft. Combine the rest of the ingredients. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to simmer for 1 to 3 hours. Add the parsely at the end. Depending on the type of sauce you want. It can be chunky if you like. Makes 3 to 4 quarts.

Sometimes I use a hand blender to puree' the sauce.
