*serves 4 - 6
2 cans (28 ounces) whole plum tomatoes
5 fresh plum tomatoes
2 small onions, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons brown sugar
4 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves
4 teaspoons cornstarch mixed with 2 tablespoons water
salt and ground pepper
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Strain the canned tomatoes and reserve the liquid. Place strained tomatoes on a baking sheet together with the whole fresh tomatoes and roast for 15 minutes.
In a separate pan, saute onions and garlic in olive oil until transparent. Add the juice from the canned tomatoes, the brown sugar and the chopped basil. Bring to a simmer.
Remove tomatoes from oven. Cool slightly. Peel the fresh tomatoes, then seed and cut into 1/2 inch chunks. Add the canned tomatoes to the onion and garlic mixture.
Thicken with the cornstarch mixture to keep the sauce from separating and simmer 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
