For this sauce, canned tomatoes provide more flavor, but choose one with few additives, like San Marzano tomatoes from Italy. The stock also matters. I generally want the tomatoes to stand out, so I choose the stock (meat, poultry, fish or vegetable) based on what I intend to serve with the sauce. Be sure to stir this sauce frequently to avoid burning the tomatoes at the bottom of the pot.
For an alternative that makes a delicious tomato sauce, try using unripe green tomatoes in place of canned tomatoes. They have an interesting flavor, are less watery than ripe tomatoes and pair well with white beans, squash and bacon for a fun side dish for turkey or pot roast.
