Harvesting the remainder of the tomatoes, zucchinis, yellow squash and cherry tomatoes before a reported frost had me scrambling a bit. I figured on making sauce but needed a bit more, so this came out a chunky, vigorous sauce for dinner and for freezing. I also used fresh herbs, basil, oregano, and chives to add spunk. Dried herbs can be subbed. Season to your taste. This is a basic sauce.
