This is one of the easiest and tastiest tomato sauce I have ever made. (I actually make it once per week 🙂 It is super easy to prepare and you can use it for pasta dishes or as a pizza sauce. The only thing you need is well-riped tomatoes. They will give an incredible taste and flavors to the sauce. The rest is all about good seasoning and some time.

PS: If you wonder why the sauce is orange and not red, this is because I used skinned tomatoes and because they were blended. Majority of the sauces which you see on the internet or grocery stores are artificially colored.
