A basic tomato pasta sauce is perfect for many occasions. Here, it makes a quick dinner with your favourite pasta and parmesan, or you could use it for the base of a vegetarian lasagne. Or dollop on a grilled chicken breast. This sauce is great to bag up and put into the freezer, ready for any occasion.
- In a heavy-based pot, warm the oil. Add the onions and garlic. Cover and sweat for 10 minutes, stirring once or twice until translucent.
- Add the tomatoes, balsamic, brown sugar, thyme and basil. Continue to cook over a low heat for 15-20 minutes until thick and flavoursome. Season with salt and pepper.
- Serve with your favourite pasta, grated parmesan and fresh basil leaves.
