There is nothing like tomato sauce made from fresh tomatoes. I buy a lot of heirloom tomatoes in the summer and the ones that get soft get used for tomato sauce. They make a very sweet sauce and it is interesting to see the sauce in different colors!
Last year I was at the farmers market and they hadn't sold all their soft tomatoes by the end of the market so they were giving them away. I got two huge bags of heirlooms and most of them were good enough for eating, the soft ones I used for sauce.
