Home made tomato sauce for pasta

I wasn’t going to blog about Eat well for Less again but  was so annoyed by the family they showed  and their profligate food spend that I am forced to reiterate what Gregg Wallace said to them about pasta sauces! There is no added sugar in this.

Every student I ever taught has learned to make it and add to it Bolognese or multiple chopped vegetables , put on pasta topping, serve over meatballs/koftas etc.

Tomato sauce ingredients less than 50p

Tomato sauce ingredients less than 50p

All you need is a carton of plain passata (31p from Lidl- came up as Cirio too when I scanned it for MFP) or use chopped tomatoes

1 onion

1 clove garlic

Tablespoon oil

Herbs and spices to taste

Simply heat oil gently, fry onion and garlic until soft, add tomatoes and seasoning then simmer at least 30 minutes.

That’s all

It freezes really well so make a big batch.

Simple and CHEAP and healthy. Kids love it
