As per the title, this tomato sauce is delicious! It couldn’t be easier to make as well which is always a plus in my book.
It has a deep and rich tomato flavour. It’s so good, I am always tempted to eat it with a spoon, straight out of the jar. In order to get this richness however, it needs to be cooked for a fair amount of time. But do not panic, it actually require very little effort while cooking, merely a stir from time to time, nothing too strenuous. I tend to cook this sauce for a good 2 to 3 hours. The longer the better basically, but if you are in a hurry, 45 minutes will still give you a very tasty sauce indeed. Once the sauce has changed from red to a deep kind of orange, you know you’ve achieved it. Use a bit less water if you cook it for 45 minutes.
It’s the perfect sauce to use as a base for your pasta, rice, pizza base or even as a dip for you potatoes wedges or chips. It’s a lot nicer than ketchup. You can spice it up with smoked paprika or add chopped veggies for a pasta sauce. It will keep a few days in the fridge.
This recipe yields for just under a litre of sauce, plenty enough for a few dishes.
