Personal Notes:
Quick and simple, this is one of the rustic sauces with a tangy lush flavor that is great for Lasagna, spaghetti or linguine. Great sauce for lasagna! You really need ripe, flavorful fresh plum tomatoes. However, in the winter you can use caned peeled tomatoes to which you add 1/2 can of tomato paste. Cherry tomatoes are also good since they seem to retain a fresh flavor all year round.
