Tomato Sauce

One of the essential things in my store cupboard is a can of peeled tomatoes. I saw this recipe in jamie's home cook book and use it to make MAF's pasta, as a pizza sauce and sometimes to make and easy sausage cassoulet.

400g can of peeled tomatoes ( chopped if you prefer)
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 tsp dried herbs
olive oil
hand ful of fresh basil chopped

1. Heat oil in a sauce pan or large frying pan, add garlic and stir fry for 1 minute.
2. Add tomatoes and dried herbs . STir and simmer till the sauce becomes thick .
3. Stir in basil.

You can puree it to a smooth sauce if you want in a food processor.

MAF"s Favourite pasta:

for 1 child
Hand ful of pasta, penne or fussili
1/3 cup of tomato sauce
Brocolli or handful of sweet corn
1 garlic sausage sliced.

Cook pasta, blanch the brocoli and sweet corn. Fry the sausage slices . Mix everything with the tomato sauce and serve.

If you are one of the mum's struggling to feed a fussy vege hater, stir in some carrots and zuchini into the sauce and puree it before you stir it into the pasta, they 'll never know it was in it.
