It literally takes 10 minutes and it’s sweet, comforting and perfect over pasta or for your Bolognese.
It’s the perfect base for so many recipes I promise.
And once you have made it once you’ll realise its so good – you will (for sure) make it all the time
Tomato Skins in Tomato Sauce
Also dare I say it? When I find loads of cherry tomatoes in the fridge and they are on their way out I make this sauce and freeze it.
Also many people have asked about the skins?
Well because you are using cherry tomatoes they are so soft, no need at all to remove them.
Also this is great as they are packed with flavour and also extra fibre (winner winner)
You can of course make it with normal sized tomatoes, I just find it’s not quite as sweet!
And you may then have to remove the skins?
