When you’ve got loads of tomatoes..what to do? Make a fabulous pasta sauce that you can either keep vego or add meat to. It’s so tasty. The best thing about this sauce, is that it has punch.
Sweet and Spicy Pasta Sauce
2 onions, diced
2 TB olive oil
1 large capsicum/red pepper, dices
2 kgs (4.4lbs) of fresh tomatoes diced
1 chili, cut into small pieces with seeds still
1 c. of fresh basil leaves, chipped
.5 tsp salt
.5 TB stevia
4-5 TB of tomato paste
.5 c. water
in a large saucepan heat olive oil over medium-high flame
add onions and chili, sauté
add capsicum, sauté
add tomatoes, remain at medium-high flame
keep this mixture at a high simmer for about 1 hour or until juice from the fresh tomatoes begins to reduce down.
add tomato paste, salt, stevia and water (if needed)
continue to simmer until the right consistency of your liking. I like mine thick.
8 oz/250g of premium ground beef
1/2 an onion, diced
4 c. of the base
2 TB of tomato paste
.5 c. of water
1 TB of Italian seasoning
salt to your taste
sauté onion in olive oil (I used about 1 TB)
add meat and brown
add remaining ingredients
It’s so yummy..and even gets better as it sits overnight. It’s also an easy sauce to freeze.
