End of Summer Tomato Sauce

Last night I made what will probably be one of the last tomato sauces of the year.  I had 4 tomatoes, brussel sprouts, an onion and broccoli (the last of the ginormous head!) that needed to be used up, and dinner was quite delicious. The sauce was incredibly simple and surprisingly rich:

4 tomatoes, chopped (save juices)
2 tbsp tomato paste
vodka (it cures what ails ya)
seasonings (I used parsley and oregano, it's what I had!)
red pepper flakes
salt & pepper
caramelized onions

Throw everything into a sauce pan over medium high and cook until the liquid reduces. Right before serving, stir in caramelized onions. Taste for seasoning, try not to eat it all in one go.

I love sauce made with fresh tomatoes, and those brussels sprouts look amazing!
