    this is the first time I've made a pasta sauce without a tin or jar. A friend gave me some tomatoes from her allotment so I came on here searching for something to do with them. Delicious! easy to make - at age 70 I've never skinned a tomato before - but this was fun. I just wish I'd made enough to freeze ... now I'll be searching for tomatoes to make more. - 24 Sep 2014
