1 homemade tomato sauce, 4 delicious dishes

There's no recipe more versatile than bright, luscious tomato sauce. Made with fresh-from-the-vine tomatoes, our endlessly adaptable version makes a flavourful jumping-off point for each of these dishes.

Start with Fresh Tomato Sauce
Peeling and seeding tomatoes may take time, but fresh homemade tomato sauce is worth the effort. Firm, ripe plum tomatoes are the best choice for this sauce, and if you grow them in your garden, even better!

Smoky Pork Bolognese Sauce
For many families, a meat sauce is part of a rotating monthly menu. We've added bacon for smokiness and boosted the depth of flavour with a little red wine. This sauce freezes well, making it a great option for weeknight dinners. Simply reheat and serve over the hot cooked pasta of your choice.
