Pasta sauce is one of those sauces I'd rather not have from a jar and to make my own as its a brilliant emergency rescue tea or tea / dinner anytime . And I am readying my son for university even though he has cookery GCSE grade A
2 cans of tinned tomatoes
or in my case 1 can of tinned tomatoes and a bottle of passata.This will make for a lot of sauce which you can obviously freeze .
1 medium onion thinly sliced
1 tablespoon of mixed herbs / Italian herbs
Salt and pepper seasonings
2 cloves of garlic crushed
150 Ml of vegetable stock
1 tablespoon of plain flour to thicken
Couple knobs of butter
1. Melt the butter in a pan and soften the sliced onion, then add the crushed garlic , herbs. Next add the vegetable stock bringing to the boil seasoning with salt and pepper.
2 next add the tomatoes cover and simmer for 20 minutes. You could blend and make smooth if you so wish or leave it rustic which is cookery speak for leave it just as it is !
3 Simmer until thick adding in the tablespoon of flour then stir in the rest of the butter .
Use the sauce with spaghetti or smooth out over a pizza base
