I’m sat here at the library with a coffee and a piece of pastry. I’m in food mood, so perfect time to share my boyfriends’s delicious tomato sauce recipe with you.
There’s nothing more I like than simplicity and this sauce is it. It’s cheap, cheerful and meat free and it tastes great!
Here’s what you need:
1 canned chopped tomatoes (apx. 400 g)
1 medium onion, super finely chopped
2 – 3 garlic cloves (depending on how big they are and how garlicky you prefer the sauce to be)
1 tbs tomato pure
1/2 ts oregano
1/2 ts basil
1/2 ts rosemary
1/4 ts thyme
1 small glass of red wine
1 ts honey (if you want to sweeten it a little)
Salt and pepper to taste
A splash of water (to rinse out leftovers in the tomato can)
PS: Remember, all measurements are ‘ish’ – you’re meant to taste your to your perfect sauce.
1. Fry onion until soft
2. Add crushed garlic
3. Throw in the chopped tomatos, wine and all spices
4. Cook for apx. 10 minutes (if it gets too thick, just add a bit of water)
5. While the sauce is simmering, prep the butterfly pasta (or any other pasta you might have – I just happen to love farfalles, as they’re called in Italian)
Mix it all together and dinner is done!
