This homemade tomato sauce is one of my go-to recipes and I probably make it in some variation at least twice a week
Perfect for a pasta Napolina and its great on steamed chicken or fish.
You can also use as a base for homemade pizza
Add some vegetable stock and pasta and its a minestrone
Add a splash of red wine during cooking and some good lean mince or a meat substitute for Bolognese or lasagne,
Top the above with diced potatoes and a sprinkle of cheese and its a delicious bake
Add some peppers, carrots, spinach, mushrooms and courgettes for an easy way to add veggies to your day,
And if your little ones won’t eat their vegetables whizz up in a blender (or a stick blender) and they will never know!
