  • 3lbs yellow tomatoes (see note, below)
  • 3 shallots, cut into large dice or 1 onion, cut into large dice

    2. Place the tomatoes, shallots or onions, and garlic on the prepared sheet tray.
    3. Toss with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
    4. Place the tray in the oven, and roast until the tomatoes are wilted and lightly golden brown in some spots, 25 to 30 minutes.
    5. Transfer the roasted tomatoes and vegetables to a blender, and puree until smooth. Note: Strain the sauce through a sieve to remove any traces of skin, if you like.
    6. Season the sauce with additional salt and pepper to taste, and add a pinch of sugar if needed.
    7. Stir in the basil, and serve with your favorite pasta, poultry or seafood.
