  • For 5 medium-sized tomatoes (or 4 large), fresh or frozen, rough chopped into large pieces.
  • Large pinch of sugar
  • Splash of olive oil
  • 2 crushed garlic cloves
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Cold herb butter


  1. Add a splash of olive to medium-sized pot on high heat.
  2. Add tomatoes and let cook on high for the next five minutes. Break up tomatoes with the back of a spoon to help thaw and break down. 
  3. After five minutes, stir in sugar and reduce heat to medium and let bubble until reduced by half. 
  4. Stir in knob of herbed butter (basil butter works well here), season with salt and pepper and use desired amount to top.
