anyway, here is a pic of my tomatoes still warm and ripening on the vine, and a recipe for simple tomato sauce, which i use pretty much constantly. you can make more or less depending on what you need, but this is the general ratio.
1 pound tomatoes, diced
1/4 onion, diced
1 or two cloves garlic, chopped
herbs of choice (i like basil and thyme, because they grow in my garden, yacine likes chopped parsley)
a little oil
in a saute pan add the oil. when hot add onions and saute until soft. add garlic and cook until fragrant, salt and pepper, tomatoes, and herbs. stir until softened. add a little water for a thinner sauce, or reduce for a thick sauce. (however, you may want more tomatoes if you want a thick sauce)
This is a recipe for a chunky or semi chunky sauce. if i wanted a smooth sauce i would buy it in a jar.
