In a large bowl pour boiling water over tomatoes let stand for 1 minute. Drain and cover with cold water. Remove skins and cores cut each tomato into quarters. Place in a large kettle. Stirring frequently over medium-high heat, bring to a boil reduce heat to medium, cover and simmer until very soft, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat cool. Place 2 cups at a time in a blender container or food processor bowl cover and blend or process until uniform but not smooth. Return to kettle.
Preheat oven to 350° F. Add onions, green peppers, parsley, brown sugar, garlic, salt, oregano, basil and pepper. Over medium-high heat bring to a boil. Place kettle in oven and bake, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until consistency of commercial tomato sauce. Cool. Ladle into 1-pint freezer containers, leaving 1-inch headspace. Cover and freeze.
One pint of sauce is enough for a 16-ounce package of spaghetti, cooked. If you prefer, add 1 pound cooked ground beef and 1/4 pound cooked Italian sausage to sauce before serving on spaghetti. Sauce is also good with other pasta dishes calling for tomato sauce.
