A classic Italian recipe. This is a blend of harmonious flavors of ripe tomatoes with onion, peppercorns and oregano.

I often make large quantities of this sauce when tomatoes are in season and freeze it in an air-tight container. That way I am always ready to serve Pizzas in a hurry.

You can use this recipe for a pasta sauce. Dilute the sauce using water and add 2 tablespoons fresh cream to mellow the sauce a little and toss cooked pasta in it. You can add your favourite herbs too, like a few leaves of basil.
