Tip: This sauce can be used on pasta, as a pizza topping, or as a base for casseroles and stews. Once you perfect your recipe you can make large quantities and preserve them for use over the cooler months.
Nothing beats using your own fresh produce or materials around the house. If you’re missing a thing or two, tick the items you need to add to your shopping list.
What to do
Prepare all of the ingredients based on the instructions in the ingredients list.
Heat the oil in the frying pan and add garlic and a pinch of salt. Cook for 30 seconds.
Add tomatoes, sugar and pepper.
Cook for at least 10 minutes, and up to 30 minutes. The final cooking time depends on the time you have available and the type of flavour you want the sauce to have: less cooking results in a fresher flavour, while longer cooking results in a deeper, more intense flavour.
