Cook and stir onion and garlic in oil and 1 tablespoon butter in large skillet over medium-high heat until onion is tender. Add tomatoes with juice, basil, oregano, and thyme. Reduce heat to low.

Fun Fact: Deep in the mountains of Graham County, North Carolina, lies a 3800-acre tract of the most beautiful forest in America. On July 30, 1936, the area was dedicated to the poet Joyce Kilmer as a living memorial. It was his simple but beautiful words in the poem “Trees” that prompted forestry officials and friends of nature to set aside the acreage that is now Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest.
