Does anyone have a good recipe for a tomato sauce? I'm making meatballs to take to a work function and want to have some dipping sauce to go with it.

We just buy canned tomatoes. Kroger carries a few brands that are just tomato. Add a ton of spices. Basil, oregano, salt, pepper. Let it simmer for at least an hour. We purée the tomatoes, but you can skip this step if you like it chunky. We alternate between fresh herbs and dried herbs depending on what our garden is producing. You can also add red pepper for some heat. We make large amounts and freeze it. We just made some that also had beef broth in it (used some we made) and it had a rich flavor.

Also if you roast a load of medditeranean veg incl. cherry tomatoes, then blitz it with fresh basil it makes a great tasty & healthy sauce

We roast tomatoes and onions and garlic all together low, like around 250, with some basil and a little drizzle of balsamic vinegar for a couple hours then puree it all up for a nice rich tasting sauce.
