I have used this recipe for years and it never fails. I usually make it in the summer as we usually have a vegetable garden and always end up with too many tomatoes, I then make in batches,for the freezer. I use a lot of garlic in this recipe but thats because we love it and the garlic sweetens in the roasting process. I have strained the sauce at times to remove the seeds. Though most people don't mind tomato seeds.
