Impress your friends with this Italian dish. This tomato sauce is made from a traditional Italian recipe and is simple to make.  It tastes delicious and works perfectly with pasta dishes.

The secret to great sauce is to use the freshest, top quality ingredients.  Use fresh herbs where possible, and prepare ingredients just prior to cooking to retain their flavour.  Having a small amount of herbs growing in your allotment or on your kitchen windowsill will give you a head start.

1 kg small variety tomatoes
1 large onion
4 cloves Garlic
1 teaspoon chopped Rosemary
1 teaspoon chopped Basil
2 tablespoons plain Olive oil
1 glass red wine

Place the tomatoes in the oven and roast them for 35 minutes (this enhances the flavour). Bring a pan of water to the boil.  Place the roasted tomatoes into a sieve and  lower into the pan for a minute in order to remove the peel.

Chop the onion and garlic and place into another pan along with the olive oil. Gently heat for 5 minutes.

Place the peeled tomatoes into a saucepan and simmer for 5-10 minutes.  Mash the tomatoes with a potato masher and place in sieve to remove any excess water. Place the tomatoes in the saucepan containing the onion and garlic and add the red wine. Chop the herbs and add to the tomatoes. Simmer for 10 minutes.

Season with salt and pepper. All ready to serve on your delicious pasta. Perfect.
