Fresh Sicilian Tomato Sauce

READY IN: 4hrs 30mins
Recipe by KeyWee

This is the recipe to have when your garden is bursting with overripe tomatoes. It is adapted from the Frugal Gourmet's Italian cookbook, but we won't talk about him now, will we?! I like this recipe when I don't feel like I could possibly peel or seed one more tomato - everything gets used but the cores! Freezes well.

This was really good. I used this sauce with my regular 3-2-1 spaghetti sauce. Fantastic!
