This delectable emulsification can be used whenever tomato passata is called for in any of the recipes in this book.

Bake all the ingredients together in a moderate oven (200C/400F/gas 6) for 20 minutes, then blend thoroughly. This mixture will keep in the fridge for 4–5 days, and it can also be frozen.
