A quick and awesome sauce that's big on flavor when you're short on time. I usually add a pinch of wine or a tickle of brown sugar because Reto tells me that you always need a little sugar when working with tomatoes.


PS: When you add up all the time needed to make the sauce, it takes at lease fifteen minutes. The title is a big fat lie.
