Pasta with Homemade Pasta Sauce

Tonight I became a true Italian chef!

  • 1x tin cherry tomatoes
  • 2x "normal" tomatoes, diced
  • 1/4 onion, finely diced
  • 2 tablespoons crushed garlic
  • dried Italian Herbs
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • Red wine
  • Pepper
  • Pasta
  • Olive oil

Start some water boiling. In a saucepan fry the onion (I used rice bran oil for this part, Olive oil is at the end), then when it’s been cooking for a few minutes add the garlic. Cook that for a minute then add the can of cherry tomatoes and the normal tomatoes. By now the water should be boiling so put the pasta in. In about 5 minutes add a dash of red wine, a huge sprinkling of Italian herbs, some pepper and the brown sugar. In another 5 minutes check the pasta and taste the sauce. Add more herbs/pepper/sugar to taste. Drain pasta, put sauce on top, then put some extra virgin olive oil on top for that final touch. Belissimo!

You won’t want to use bottled/canned pasta sauce again!

    Perhaps top with Parmesan cheese, or add olives/capers/courgettes/anything you like to the sauce!
