Simmer spinach mixture, stirring occasionally, until spinach is wilted, adding more broth as necessary. Season spinach with salt and pepper to taste.
For the sauce, blanch tomatoes for a few seconds, peel, core and cut into cubes. Peel onions and garlic and chop finely. Briefly sauté onions and garlic in olive oil, stir in tomatoes and broth and bring to a boil. Stir Italian herbs and ketchup into sauce and season with salt and pepper.
