I’m not even going to give exact amounts because it really depends on individual taste. You might like more or less of whatever ingredient and I don’t want to stand in your way. Make this sauce, peels and all. You won't be sorry. Call it pasta sauce, lather it on pizza or dip mozzarella sticks into it.

Author's Notes

Season the sauce later on right before you puree it and do lots of tasting.

If you like a chunkier sauce, you can puree half the tomatoes and leave the rest as it is then mix them up.
