Tomato Sauce with Fresh Basil

From Dorothy McNett's Recipe Book at

5-6 medium red-ripe tomatoes
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
3-4 cloves garlic, slivered
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1/2 to 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/4-1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Parmigiano Reggiano and Romano for garnish

Chop tomatoes coarsely. Set aside. In saucepan, heat oil and cook onion and garlic about 5 minutes, until onion is limp. Stir in remaining ingredients, bring to boil, reduce to simmer and cook at least 30 mintues, longer is good if tomatoes are watery. Cook and taste, cook and taste until you get it right. Serve with freshly cooked pasta and garnish with freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano mixed with Romano cheese.
