Italian salmon with tomato sauce

6, 4 ounce portions of salmon ( or chicken breasts )
1 medium onion, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 T. olive oil
1 T. dried basil
1 T. dried oregano
1 cup of canned, diced tomatoes
2 T. cornstarch mixed with 1/4 C. cold water 
salt and pepper to taste
non-stick cooking spray
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Saute onion and garlic in olive oil until onion is translucent.  Add basil, oregano and diced tomatoes with juice.  Simmer for 2-3 minutes.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.  Stir in cornstarch mixture and thicken to preferred consistency.  Place fish or chicken into baking dish that has been sprayed with non-stick spray.  Cover with tomato mixture.  Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes, until fish flakes easily with fork.  
This is one of our favorite easy and tastes really good.  I served this with steamed veggies and sweet potatoes.  For the potatoes, peel and slice and then place on cookie sheet.  Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice.  Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes or until tender.
