Homemade tomato basil sauce

    25 min

    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!

    1. 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.
    2. 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.
