Heat oil in a heavy skillet. Add tomatoes, salt, garlic, onions, basil, sugar, oregano and black pepper. Cook slowly, uncovered, for 30 minutes or until sauce is thickened. In the meantime, brush peppers, squash and onion with oil. Place under broiler and cook, turning frequently until browned and tender. Remove to bowl. Cook spaghetti until al dente.
