      I really enjoyed this recipe. It is defintely a keeper and one that I will experiment with. I used plum (Roma) tomatoes from my garden and used a technique from a Williams-Sonoma cookbook that said to cut a shallow X into the flowering end of each tomatoe, place in boiling water for 20 seconds and then immediately dip them into ice cold water. The skins came right off! The modifications I made to this recipe was to use 3 small to medium sized onions, doubled the garlic (8 cloves), and added two jalapenos (one seeded, one not) for some heat. Everything else I kept as is. My friend, with whom I shared this, said it was really delicious. Thanks for posting.

      In late summer when the tomatoes are plentiful and ripe on the vine, this fresh sauce is a staple at my house. The family loves it, and guests rave. You can't go wrong on this one. Thanks UPDATE: Incredibly delicious and simple. Vine ripened tomatoes make the sauce spectacular. A definite crowd pleaser. I have substituted fresh rosemary for the basil. Yummy.

      This was great and will probably also make a great base for tomato soup as well. First, for those who found it too thin, make sure 1) you're simmering it UNCOVERED and 2) to try pureeing it. I used an immersion blender which made this super easy and fast. I also added fresh oregano b/c I had it. Lastly, you can easily can/freeze this and pull it out to make a quick tomato soup: add a little chicken broth and if you like a 'bisque', some cream, half and half or whole milk.
