Ingredients

  • 5 plum tomatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons capers (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 pound spaghetti
  • Handful fresh basil leaves, to taste

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Roast the tomatoes: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Halve 5 plum tomatoes. On two large rimmed baking sheets, arrange tomatoes, cut side up, and sprinkle with sugar. Bake until softened and edges are crinkled, about 1 hour. Let cool.

  2. Step 2

    Set a large pot of salted water to boil. Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine tomatoes, oil, capers (if using), and lemon juice; season with salt and pepper. Cook pasta until al dente. Drain pasta and return to pot; toss with tomato mixture. Serve pasta topped with basil.
