Number of Servings: 6


    5 lbs of tomatoes cored and quartered
    1 lb. tomatoes, cored and diced
    2 onions, chopped
    8 garlic cloves, peeled and whole
    1 garlic clove minced
    1/2 tsp salt, plus more to taste
    1/4 tsp sugar, plus more to taste

1. Adjust oven rack to upper-middle position and heat oven to 450 degrees. Combine quartered tomatoes, onions, whole garlic cloves, oil, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp sugar in large roasting pan. Roast, stirring once or twice, until tomatoes are brown in spots, about 1 1/2 hours (I found that it took me only about 45 minutes). Let cool 5 minutes. Working in two batches, process roasted tomatoe mixture in food processor until smooth. (Pureed mixture can be refrigeratoed for up to 1 day).
2. When ready to serve, combine diced tomatoes, minced garlic, basil, and 1/4 tsp salt in bowl and marinate for 30 minutes. Transver to large saucepan, add pureed tomato mixture, and simmer over medium heat until diced tomatoes are slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and sugar to taste. Serve.
