2 red capsicums
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 red onion, roughly chopped
1-2 cloves garlic, crushed
14 oz. can chopped tomatoes
1/2 cup chopped parsley
1/2 cup chopped basil leaves
1 tablespoon tomato paste
Cut the capsicums into quarters, remove the membrane and seeds and grill, skin-side-up, until blackened. Cool in a plastic bag for 10 minutes, peel away the skin and chop roughly.
Heat the oil in a pan and cook the onion and garlic for 2 minutes, or until soft but not brown. Add the tomatoes, parsley, basil, tomato paste, sugar and 1 1/2 c. water.
Add the chopped capsicum and cook, stirring often, over very low heat for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until thick. Leave to cool slightly, then puree in batches in a food processor (blender). Season with salt and black pepper.
