  • our pan as soon as they start to begin to colour what we'll do is add in some fresh

  • basil again this was a bunch that I had earlier and just tore it off in to little pieces but

  • add that in there and also our plum tomatoes get that all in there looking amazing whilst

  • that was warming through I was using my spatula to break down those plum tomatoes if you're

  • using a wooden spoon or even a potato masher do that just to squish up those plum tomatoes

  • a little bit give it a seasoning of salt and pepper and just keep until it reaches a simmer

  • looking amazing so yep as soon as it's come to the boil remove the pan from the heat and

  • we're gonna strain that sauce through a sieve in to a large mixing bowl now you can use

  • your spatula to push any large bits of tomato through and just get it all on there and make

  • sure you scrape the bottom of the sieve to get off any little chunks of tomato I actually

  • did this in batches because I found that it sort of spilled over if you did too much so

  • do it a little bit at a time until you're left with a really lovely tomato sauce discard

  • any leftover bits of basil and garlic then simply pour the sauce back in to the pan,

  • we're gonna bring that up to a boil and then let it simmer away for a good five minutes
