Although sauces and salsas are easily available in the market today, it is fresher, more aromatic and definitely more satisfying if made at home. Here is an easy tomato sauce that you can prepare in bulk and store in the refrigerator for using with pizzas and pastas. You will love the fresh flavour of tomatoes, capsicum, onions and garlic, tinged with herbs and spices. Even the mild drizzling of olive oil plays a special part in enhancing the flavour.
