This is the best fresh pasta sauce, Member diannejoan

This recipe was everything I was looking for. It is summer and I had extra tomatoes. Not mentioned in the recipe directions, for the beginning cooks, is to peel the tomatoes easily just put them in boiling water for about one minute until the skin splits. Husband says he is fussy but he gobbled this down and asked if I would make it again. I have been a prep cook so the chopping did not bother me at all.
