Used Passata to fasten the process of cooking tomatoes
Always check seasoning, add a pinch of sugar to moderate the acidity or tartness of the tomatoes.
Adding fresh herbs will always make it smell awesome and pleasing to the eyes.
You can add the fresh cream if you fancy it, optional can be omitted.
