Quick Tomato Sauce (serves 4)
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1kg canned tomatoes, drained and chopped
- fresh basil or parsley
- salt and pepper
Bake the onion in the olive oil for about 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes, salt and pepper. Cook the sauce for 10 to 15 minutes until the tomatoes fall apart and the sauce thickens. Add herbs to taste. Optional you can add some grated cheese on top.
Thats it! The sauce is enough for 450 gram pasta. Of course I added some other veggies as well, in this case courgette and red bell pepper. But it can be served with any veggies you have on hand and taste good with pasta.
You can vary with the sauce endlessly because this is just a base sauce. For a creamier sauce you can add mascarpone or you can variate with the herbs you add. For instance, oregano, thyme or add some garlic.
