Tomato sauce

Simple tomato sauce

Today, we made the most delicious tomato sauce for spaghetti. Seriously – it was amazing and simple to make! If you have a fussy eater in your family, you can conceal vegetables in this sauce.

In our house, we eat tomato sauce with everything – I even eat it with… wait for it… salad. So tomato sauce is not just for pasta; you can have it with almost everything. You can even use it as the base of so many other recipes.

I tend to make a big batch, freeze it, and on the days that I can’t be bothered to cook (or the days that I have not planned our lunch or dinner) I dig it out of my freezer, make some pasta and feed the family.

What you’ll need

2 tbsp butter

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

2 large leeks chopped

2 large carrots chopped

2 small onions chopped

4 fat garlic cloves chopped

400g tin of chopped tomatoes with juice

1 tbsp honey

Salt and pepper to taste

What to do

  1. Heat the butter and olive oil together over low heat.
  2. Add the garlic, onions, leeks, garlic and onions. Sweat for five minutes.
  3. Add the tomatoes and their juices and honey. Turn the heat up to high.
  4. Bring to boil then turn the heat to low.
  5. Cook for 45 minues, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper.
