Homemade tomato sauce recipe
This is a simple tomato sauce that works well with our Beef meatballs or with plain pasta on nights when you need something quick.
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
4 garlic doves, finely chopped
1 tablespoon dried mixed herbs
2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes
Freshly ground black pepper
Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over a medium-high heat. Add the onion, garlic and mixed herbs, stirring occasionally until soft, about 2-3 minutes. Add the tomatoes and bring to the boil.
Turn down to simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens, about 10-15 minutes.
Tip: This freezes well for up to 1 month in an airtight container. Allow to cool to room temperature before freezing.
