About this recipe:I find that shop-bought tomato sauce spoils many recipes - too salty, too sweet or just too concentrated. To make it yourself only takes a few minutes, especially since, with this recipe, you don't peel the tomatoes!
Makes: 1 small jar
3 or 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
6 ripe tomatoes, quartered
3 garlic cloves
15 basil leaves
salt and ground black pepper

Place the olive oil, tomatoes, garlic and basil in a pan. Cover, and heat over medium low heat, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes break down and are very soft, about 20 minutes.
Blend with an immersion blender, or in a food processor, until smooth. Use immediately, or allow to cool; then freeze in small recloseable bags for later use.
