Anything housemade is sure to have the wow factor. What I love about homemade pasta sauce is, it looks impressive! With very little effort. Typical pasta sauce is based around a peasant diet from the 1700’s. So most of these ingredients are around my home most days to add flavour to other dishes.
2-4 kilos of Tomatoes. Cut in half
4 Onions, diced
7 cloves of Garlic, minced
4 tbsp Olive Oil
1/2 cup Red Wine
4 tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
4 Bay Leaves
Small bunch of fresh; Basil, Thyme, parsley.
2 tbsp Dried Oregano
2 tbsps of Pepper (or 2-3 anchovies… don’t be scared they do the same thing, add salt!)
Good pinch of Pepper
2 tsp of Bi Carb (to make it less acidic)
Fry Onions and Garlic in oil
Once slightly browned add all other ingredients.
Simmer for 2 hours. Be careful not to boil it.
Blitz to your own consistently. We prefer it chunky and organic.
Store in air tight glass jars. Freeze until ready to use.
Simple. Tasty. Enjoy.
