Hints

If you have fresh tomatoes that you need to use up, chop them roughly and add to sauce.

If you are adding minced meat, place it into the pan after step 2 and fry until browned before continuing to the next steps.

If you use basil, only cut through the leaves once to avoid them going black, or better still, just pull leaves apart with your fingers.
