Easy pasta sauce
Place 2 tins of plum tomatoes, 1/2 chopped onion, basil, 2x chopped garlic cloves,1/2 chopped pepper, 2 sticks of chopped celery and one chopped carrot in a pan with half a pint of water, salt and pepper .Bring to the boil and simmer for half an hour. Depending on your taste either liquidise or sieve to remove fleshy parts of the vegetables. Great as sauce for spaghetti bolognaise, or as a base for chilli, lasagne or spread over pizza base. You could also substitute fresh tomatoes depending on the season or add red wine to taste. This is very easy and so much cheaper and tastier than shop bought sauces which are increasingly expensive.Can be refirgerated and should be used within five days. Why not give it a try?
