This sauce is more creamy than zesty but still good. I didn't add salt because I used salted butter however I did followe the method as written. It is a bit runny. I suggest seeding the tomatoes...

WAY too much salt! I had to add a can of tomato paste and a can of tomato sauce just to tone down the saltiness.
