Slice onions. Mince garlic.
1. In a large Dutch oven
or soup pot, melt butter and saute onion slowly, until
they are golden and caramelized. (Stir infrequently
- every 10 minutes- to encourage caramelizing. This
will take about 30 minutes).
2. Add garlic and tomato
paste. Stir in for about 2 minutes. Add remaining ingredients,
stir well. Simmer over low heat for at least 30 minutes
and up to 1 hour.
