DIRECTIONS

  • If I want to use this as a the basis for a meat sauce or chilli sauce I don't usually bother to peel the tomatoes, when I want a silky smooth sauce that runs beautifully I do peel them.
  • You choose Peel tomatoes by covering with boiling water in a bowl for 5 minutes if you want the"smooth" recipe.
  • Chop tomotoes into evenly sized pieces.
  • Heat olive oil and sauté garlic and onion until soft.
  • Add tomatoes, tomato pureé, Basil, salt and pepper.
  • Simmer gently got 30-40 until it reduces a little.
  • Serve as is, or put in a blender until smooth.
  • For Chilli sauce, add 1/4-1/2 teaspoon chilli powder (to your preference) or fresh chillies.
  • Adding browned minced meat makes a nice easy sauce for over pasta.
