Recipe tips
  • To make the sauce thicker for a pizza, just simmer gently for an extra 5-10 minutes stirring regularly to cook off more of the liquid.
  • To get more veggies into fussy kids, add a finely chopped red pepper with the onions.
  • Turn into a Putanesca sauce by adding a good pinch of chilli flakes, black olives and a few capers.
  • Freeze in plastic cups then wrap in freezer bags once frozen.
