Pasta with Fresh Tomato Sauce

First , I wanted to be clear. You’ll have to buy a heap of fresh tomatoes, parsley, garlic and basil. Because this isn’t tomato sauce (aka ketchup) that you have on a sausage. This is pasta sauce, made with fresh tomatoes. Just like I said above.Now that we’ve cleared that up, let’s get cracking.
