In another pan heat onion and garlic in olive oil. Cook until tender (about 4 minutes).

Put onion and garlic in the pot with the tomatoes.  Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce heat.  Simmer for 5 minutes.

Cool and transfer to freezer safe containers leaving at least a 1/2 inch space.  Let cool. Seal, label and date.  Freeze for up to 1/2 a year.
