You can make this recipe a few different ways. You can use fresh ripe tomatoes for a wonderful summertime quick pasta sauce. This way is quicker and more vibrant than using canned and I highly suggest trying it when your garden is at it’s peak! Another way is to use your quick and easy canned tomatoes you’ve got stored in the cabinet, or sometimes you may run out or you just don’t have a garden but still want a great easy recipe. In this case you can use store bought tomatoes or sauce. If you buy whole canned tomatoes in sauce you can just put them in a blender and add in place of diced tomatoes. I recommend finding a brand that does not have added salt. It’s better if you can control how much salt is used. Either way works and all make for great options at dinner time!
