Cook over a low heat for 20 minutes and mash the tomatoes with a fork. Throw in a few torn fresh basil leaves, season to taste and serve with hot pasta.


    Make a cocktail by blending a tin of whole tomatoes with 100ml vodka or tequila, a pinch of fresh or dried chilli and a squeeze of fresh lime juice. Pour into a glass with ice and serve.
