This quick and easy (with no faff) tomato sauce is often one of my midweek “go-to’s” in my kitchen.
With a delicious tomato sauce in your fridge or freezer you are only minutes away from lots of wholesome meals.
Tomato sauce is not just for pasta though, think vegetarian lasagnes, risottos, pizza toppings, stews and soups.
Equally the sauce can be the base for other delicious sauces like spicy Arrabbiata, Puttanesca or a creamy Tomato & Mascarpone sauce. (see serving suggestions)
Chopped Tomatoes: Italian whole peeled tomatoes tend to be better quality than chopped tomatoes but use whatever you have. Some tins of chopped tomatoes can be quite chunky, if you find your sauce to chunky you might want to whizz it (a few pulses) with a hand held blender.
Getting ahead: The sauce can be made 3 days in advance.
Leftovers: Make a batch and freeze into 250ml or 500ml jars.
