Extra Chunky Tomatoe Sauce

We all use jar sauce, its not a crime, but sometimes when I am low on it and don't really have time to make a my own, I cut up a container of cherry tomatoes and and add to the jar sauce. It almost doubles the quantity.
1 jar of spaghetti sauce
1 small container of cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
1 small onion, sliced
2 tbs. of olive oil
1 tsp. garlic powder
dash of salt and pepper
grated cheese for garnish if desired
In a medium sauce pan heat the oil and onions. Don't let onions burn, just cook the until soft. Add in cherry tomatoes and let heat for about 10-15 minutes. You want the tomatoes to get very soft and break up a bit, but not mushy. Season with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Add in jar sauce and let simmer on low for about 15 minutes. In the mean time bring your pasta to boil, drain and toss in to the sauce and serve. Always pour pasta in to sauce and not sauce over pasta.  Garnish with cheese.
