Do not ever use FRESH tomatoes in the US. Sure, raw tomato recipes sound great, but tomatoes in the US are ****, full of water, and have little flavor. In the US, buy Italian San Marzano canned tomatoes, and use those. If you INSIST on using fresh tomatoes, like when they are in season, use roma tomatoes. Cut them in half, salt the flesh, and bake them in the over for about an hour at 250. This will evaporate a lot of the water, concentrating the flavor, and keeping your sauce from going watery.
