Fresh tomatoe pasta sauce??

ems5, Mar 22, 12:06am
Ok, so I am a complete novice in the kitchen, but I have heaps of very ripe tomatoes and I want to make a pasta sauce to freeze for DS who is 13mths.

Can I just chop them up, put them in a pan with some vege stock, onion, basil, mushrooms and green pepper, reduce it down and then freeze? ?

Does that sound ok? ? All the sauce recipes I can find seem so complicated? ? Anything else I should add/omit? ?

I reduce plain tomatoes and freeze in containers, then pop them out of the containers and into plastic bags. When I need them, I add different herbs and flavourings.
