    What's the point of creating sauce based on a ready-made sauce?
    Not only may the available products vary wildly between different regions of the world, but most readers won't be able to make the sauce with either fresh tomatoes or tomato purree (which vary less between different regions) after having read this recipe.

    Birgit- You could take 5-6 tomatoes and grill them over a wood fire until lightly charred, then whiz them up until smooth instead of the tomato sauce and liquid smoke. But, then this wouldn't be easy as the title implies. Sometimes you have to be willing to look around for a creative solution....no matter where you live...

    The point of the recipe is that it's supposed to be easy. Not everyone has access to high-quality fresh tomatoes and some may even prefer the taste and consistency of canned tomatoes.
