Test Kitchen Tip

This recipe makes 5 cups of sauce, more than you’ll need for many recipes. Refrigerate or freeze the leftovers and use them whenever you're looking for a light pasta sauce.


Preheat oven to 450°.

Combine tomatoes, onions, garlic, salt, pepper flakes, and sugar.

Toss tomato mixture with oil and roast in a large baking dish until tomatoes blister and garlic is soft, 3540 minutes. Remove tomato mixture from oven and mash with a potato masher, keeping tomatoes a bit chunky.

Stir in basil.
