When tomatoes are cheap its always a great idea to stock up the fridge with some fresh tomato passata. This can be used in so many ways from pizza sauce, pasta sauces, meatloaf or just add to a casserole to give extra flavour. Anything you would use a tin of tomatoes for you can use your homemade passata. To be honest I don't have an exact recipe for this, its another chuck it in the bowl kind of recipe so you can tweak it to your own liking. And for those that like the label I used here is the link for Jam Labels so you can print straight from your computer.
