Ingredients:

1. 6 whole tomatoes

2. 2 cloves of garlic

3. 1 tbsp olive oil

4. 1 tbsp dried Italian herbs

5. 1 tbsp tomato purée, optional

Method:

1. Pierce tomatoes and microwave in a bowl for 4-5 minutes.

2. Let it cool and remove the skin. Mash the pulp well. You can use the skin but I like the texture without skin.

3. In a pan, heat oil and fry garlic. Add tomatoes, tomato purée, a splash of water and Italian herbs.

4. Let it boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and use as a base sauce.
