  • 1 tbsp Olive oil Good drizzle
  • 400 grams Chopped tomatoes Tin or 2 large fresh beef tomatoes
  • 1 small Onion
  • 1 Garlic clove

  • 1 tbsp Red wine or red wine vinager
  • Italien herbs Basil makes a great tomato sauce
  • Pinch Salt and pepper


  • Step: Add finely chopped onions and some salt to a pan with the olive oil
  • Step: Sweating the onions is important, as it releases the flavours, but don’t let it burn. Add in the chopped garlic.
  • Step: Cook for another minute or so and then add your tinned or freshly chopped tomatoes*.
  • Step: Once the tomatoes have been cooking for a few minutes add the roasted pepper and red wine or red wine vinegar. Cover and cook on a low heat for at least 15 minutes with the lid on.
  • Step: Do a taste test and add more salt and some pepper along with the Italian herbs or fresh basil. Pop the lid back on and cook for another 10 minutes (longer if you have time).
  • Step: Blend using a handheld blender or a food processor.


You can either add it to your dish or pour in containers for later use.
