    1. Heat oil in a saucepan over low heat.
    2. Pour in the tomatoes, add the basil leaves and squeeze in a generous amount of tomato puree to thicken it up.
    3. Then add the mustard, garlic salt, Worcestershire sauce, balsamic, herbs and cayenne; mix thoroughly.
    4. Add the slice of lemon and diced onion. Simmer for 5 - 10 minutes over a low heat.
