I make this dish using my own bottled Tomato & Basil sauce but if you don't have time to cook a batch of this sauce then just use tinned tomatoes instead. Just add a little more basil to the sauce and cook a little longer before adding the ricotta. It won't have quite the same flavour but it will still be good :)
