Tomato Sun Sauce

Spagetti with Tomato Sun Sauce

This simple sauce is the making of my absolute favourite pasta dish !  A perfect example of the importance of good quality ingredients used at their very best…  Don’t try to make this in the middle of winter with cardboard toms from the supermarket, save this recipe for the height of tomato season and use the juciest variety you can get your hands on…  Another must:  A hot sunny day !!
