About this recipe: There are many versions of this delicious, indispensable sauce. This one is a basic recipe for fresh tomatoes. Vine-ripened or full-flavoured summer tomatoes are best, but when they are not available, the sauce can be made with canned tomatoes.
At the beginning of the tomato season, you can boost the flavour of the sauce by adding 1 tbsp tomato pure or sun-dried tomato paste. * Use 2 cans chopped tomatoes, about 400 g each, with the juice, instead of fresh tomatoes.
