Spaghetti Sauce

1. In a sauce pan over medium heat, melt the bacon fat and cook the onions until they are translucent, approximately 5 minutes. Season with sea salt and black pepper.
2. Add the garlic and stir in to cook for an additional 30 seconds, then add the tomatoes. Stir to combine and season with sea salt and black pepper to taste. Reduce the heat to low and simmer together for 15-20 minutes.
3. Add the basil and oregano and simmer for an additional 5 minutes.
4. Serve over zucchini noodles (pictured) and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil for added flavor and richness.
