ingredients

directions

  • In a large saucepan, add butter, brown sugar, and onions, cook on medium high heat until onions are soft and caramelized.
  • Add tomatoes in a single layer, along with garlic.
  • Pour in enough stock to cover tomatoes 2/3 of the way up.
  • Stir in tomato paste until desolved.
  • Occasionally roll over tomatoes for even cooking, until the skins of the tomato start to fall off.
  • With a wooden spoon crush tomatoes, and continue to stir until tomatoes break down into bite sized piece and the stock has reduced by about half.
  • Now, break out the siv and put it on top of a large bowl.
  • Now, ladle in some of the sauce and push through the siv with a wooden spoon, occasionally scraping the bottom of the siv. You'll notice that the onion, tomato, and even the big chunks of garlic get pushed through, leaving behind the tomato skins.
  • Do this in batches till you've sivved all of the sauce.
  • If the sauce is still too thin, return to the sauce pan and reduce until desired thickness.
  • Turn off heat and stir in extra virgin olive oil, Italian seasoning, and salt and pepper to taste.
