Easiest Homemade Tomato Sauce

It's summer time so tomatoes are taking over my CSA boxes lately. Although this recipe uses canned tomatoes, I threw in some fresh ones to enhance the flavor. This could be used as a sauce with pasta or as a base for a homemade pizza at home. I just had some of this sauce with leftover vegetables and tofu. It's pretty easy to find a use for it and be sure to freeze some to have on hand. Enjoy!
