  1. 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.

  2. You choose Peel tomatoes by covering with boiling water in a bowl for 5 minutes if you want the"smooth" recipe.

  3. Chop tomotoes into evenly sized pieces.

  4. Heat olive oil and sauté garlic and onion until soft.

  5. Add tomatoes, tomato pureé, Basil, salt and pepper.

  6. Simmer gently got 30-40 until it reduces a little.

  7. Serve as is, or put in a blender until smooth.

  8. For Chilli sauce, add 1/4-1/2 teaspoon chilli powder (to your preference) or fresh chillies.

  9. Adding browned minced meat makes a nice easy sauce for over pasta.
