1 tablespoon sugar
1 salt and pepper; to taste
6 oz tomato paste

Instructions

We like to make this delicately spiced sauce in the summer when fresh, ripe tomatoes are sweet and plentiful. And the addition of fresh basil definitely adds a gourmet touch Place chopped tomatoes in a colander or strainer for 30 min to drain. Press down with a spoon several times to squeeze out excess liquid. In a medium sauce pan over medium heat add onions, garlic and cook until onions are tender adding a bit of water to prevent sticking about 5-10 min. Add tomatoes, basil, sugar salt and pepper to saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered 1 hour. Stir in tomato paste and continue to cook 10 more min. Serve over your favorite shape of pasta. Nutrition (per serving): 82 calories Total Fat 1 g (9% of calories)
