|2||onions, coarsely chopped|
|2||cloves garlic, finely chopped|
|1||teaspoon dried oregano|
|6||large ripe tomatoes, peeled and coarsely chopped|
|2||tablespoons dry red wine|
|1/2||teaspoon crushed red pepper, or to taste|
|Salt and black pepper, to taste|
|1/4||cup fresh basil leaves, cut into julienne strips|
2. Add the wine, red pepper, sugar, salt, and black pepper. Cook over medium heat for 10 minutes more.
3. Just before serving, taste for seasoning and add more salt or red pepper, if you like. Sprinkle with basil. Serve over pasta and sprinkle with cheese. Adapted from Diana Burton.
