Did you taste your onions before adding? Sometimes onions can be extremely bitter.

Could be the tomatoes that are bitter, try adding sugar, a teaspoon at a time. Should help the sauce. Good luck:)

I have that problem some times, even with fresh produce. I have been successful correcting it with sweeteners.
