I always like to keep a couple cans of chopped, not stewed, tomatoes on hand. I used to like the Contadina Recipe-Ready w/ olive oil, but that line was discontinued a couple yrs ago (the pastes remain, I think). Any favorites for chopped?
BTW, I made a wonderful marinara tonight w/ fresh tomatoes, basil, e-v olive oil, and -- the secret -- a touch of white truffle oil. Buy the best you can find, the others might have a touch of bitterness. This sauce could be eaten straight and cold like gazpacho, no pasta needed here! Try the oil.
