Quick home-made tomato sauce

My husband bought a tray of lovely heirloom tomatoes from Flemington Markets.  Some of them were already pretty over ripe so we decided to make a quick and easy tomato sauce which can be used as the base for many other delicious meals.

Even better it’s cheap to make, you can control the sodium levels and no refined sugar like the majority of store bought sauces contain.
