I would peel them and then dice them then simmer them maybe with a bit of water and your other ingredients for the sauce.

I would either roast them in the oven with fresh garlic cloves (not chopped), some orange and yellow bell peppers and onions ( and salt pepper and olive oil) then blend after they get a good color

Or chop them up and put them in a pan with garlic, olive oil maybe onions, not too saucy.

Eta I don't peel them.

saute onion, garlic and peppers or whatever youve got, cut tomatoes in half squish out seeds rough chop throw in blender or food processor until its a rough chop but not dead. then simmer down with onion saute. I like to add a can of tomato paste because we like ours thick.

To peel tomatoes, toss them in some boiling water for a few minutes, let them cool and the skins will come off easily. Then I put them in the vitamix till they are just still barely chunky. Heat up a little oil in the french oven, add garlic rosemary & thyme and infuse for 10 minutes before sauteeing green pepper, onion and mushroom. Add tomatoes & meat and let simmer for a couple of hours. YUM!
