2 cups finely diced red ripe fresh tomatoes
In small saucepan, combine the diced tomatoes, snipped basil, sugar, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Stir and remove from the heat and set aside. In heavy bottomed saute pan melt butter. Using medium to low heat, cook the onion pieces until butter and onions are just beginning to brown. Whisk the flour into the butter and onion mixture and cook and stir until the mixture is a rich golden brown but not burned. Gradually blend in the warm tomato mixture, stirring constantly and cook 3-4 minutes to thicken. Taste and adjust the seasonings as needed.
