Cherry Tomato Sauce
This has to be one of the easiest tomato sauces to make. It’s the ultimate beginner’s tomato sauce because there’s no chopping. All you basically have to do is throw the tomatoes into a pan, cover them, and wait until they all burst. One thing to note is the seed factor. You’ll find many Italian chefs who say they would never remove seeds from a tomato sauce. If you agree, this is a sauce for you. Seeding isn’t an option here, but you don’t really need to — the seeds, while numerous, are hardly bitter. Click here to see It's Time for a Cherry Tomato Fiesta — 11 Great Recipes.

Fettuccine for a crowd
This incredibly light tomato sauce can be served with a variety of dishes, from pasta to a fish stew. Mint brings a refreshing twist to classic tomato sauce. Use the freshest, ripest tomatoes that you can find; your best bet is to peruse farmers' markets for the best tomatoes. Adapted from "Recipes for Parties" by Michael Leva and Nancy Parker.

This recipe is inspired by puttanesca sauce, which, according to many sources, was a dish that Neapolitan prostitutes in the mid-20thcentury served to their customers. Is that true or just legend? I have no idea, but I know it’s not that backstory that would tempt me to make the sauce. I prefer to emphasize all of its zesty, bold, and briny elements. Serve the sauce with pasta; spoon some sauce into a baking dish, nestle cod or halibut fillets in it, and bake; or grill pita or other flat bread and top it with the sauce. You can customize the sauce as you like. I can’t handle more than a modicum of chile heat, so I’ve been cautious here. But if you can stand the fire, add more chile than the recipe calls for. If you like tangy flavors, add more olives, and for more salt and umami, increase the amount of anchovies. About those anchovies: Please don’t skip them unless you’re a vegetarian. They add so much to this — and any — dish. Click here to read more about sauces.

Green Beans in Tomato Sauce
I prefer flat Romano beans for this typical Mediterranean dish, which I make frequently in midsummer, when I’m inundated with beans from my garden in British Columbia. If tomatoes are ready at the same time, I’ll use them (peeled and seeded) for the sauce, along with fresh herbs. But this quick version with canned tomatoes and dried herbs is almost as good. As usual with vegetable recipes in this book, it is important not to overcook the beans. The difference between crunchy-tender perfection and all-the-way-through softness is only a minute or two. Please try a bean a short time before you think they might be done.Fast Food, Good Food More Than 150 Quick and Easy Ways to Put Healthy, Delicious Foods on the Table courtesy Little, Brown and Company Copyright © 2015 by Andrew Weil, MD

Tomatoes
When plum tomatoes are no longer available at the farmers’ market, I turn to this easy, yet still delicious basic sauce (sugo di pomodoro semplice). Using superior-quality canned tomatoes and good olive oil makes all the difference in this recipe. I use diced imported Italian tomatoes packed in their natural juices, which yield a fresher-tasting sauce than one made from tomatoes in heavy puree, which gives the sauce the flavor of tomato paste/purée.

Baked Eggs in Tomato Sauce
"Baking eggs in a tomato sauce simplifies the preparation of perfectly cooked eggs for a crowd. The eggs are nestled into an aromatic sauce that surrounds the eggs and lets them cook gently to runny-yolk perfection. I like to serve this with a crusty baguette for dipping and scooping up the basil-infused sauce." - Melissa d'Arabian, author of Supermarket Healthy: Recipes and Know-How for Eating Well Without Spending a Lot
