  • Quarter the tomatoes and scoop out the seedy pulp and set it outside
  • Cut the onion into hunks
  • Add the tomatoes, onions, garlic cloves and fresh basil leaves and a little water so the ingredients don't scorch

  • Toss with your hands and bake for 40 minutes
  • Use a slotted spoon (avoid the juices) to remove the ingredients from the pan and transfer it to a separate pan
