two stolen/slightly altered from my man Alton Brown:
1. cut a shit ton of plum tomatoes in half, scoop out the guts with a spoon, put in glass baking dishes. add oregano, thyme, basil, salt, pepper, roughly chopped garlic, diced onions, olive oil (in that order so the herbs and pepper don't burn). cook at 350 until carmelized. run through a food mill into a bowl (you can borrow mine if you want). stir with some vodka or white wine
2. take one of those really big cans of whole peeled tomatoes. strain the liquid into a saucepan, add garlic, white wine and italian herbs and simmer until it becomes a syrupy paste. meanwhile seed the tomatoes, add chopped onion, salt, olive oil and more garlic and broil until carmelized. once the tomato syrup is thick enough, add the broiled tomatoes, season to your liking, blend until desired consistency
