15 Minute Tomato Sauce

15 Minute Tomato Sauce

This is such a fantastic versatile sauce. It goes with pasta, spaghetti, quorn, vegetables and tofu or just about anything else you can think of.
You will need:
­ 1 large onion,
­ 1 clove garlic,
­ A 400g tin chopped tomatoes (check only tomatoes and citric acid are in the ingredients),
­ 2 teaspoons of basil (ideally fresh),
­ Salt & Pepper,
­ Olive oil for cooking,

What you do with all this:
­ Chop the garlic and onions finely.
­ Heat a wok up until the olive oil is sizzling.
­ Stir-fry the onion and garlic until slightly brown and then add the chopped tomatoes.
­ Add the basil, salt & pepper and leave the sauce to simmer until some pasta is cooked (10-15 minutes).

TIP 1 this freezes well so make a big batch and put it into small tubs in the freezer to have quick pasta whenever you like.
TIP 2 if wheat is a problem for you, you can get rice pasta and corn pasta from health food shops, which looks and tastes just like wheat but without the side effects.
TIP 3 to make this a hot and spicy pasta sauce just buy some spicy olive oil and use this for cooking instead.

    I’m confused. Aren’t all pasta just full of carbs whether they are wheat or rice based? At the end of the day they are grains.

    Thank you for all your posts.

    Kind regards,
