Homemade tomato sauce

This is my favourite quick recipe for making tomato sauce for putting on pasta and pizza, it can also be used for making spaghetti bolognaise or soup.

1 can tomatoes (450g)
1tsp tomato paste
1 onion
1 garlic clove
sprinkle of mixed herbs
oil to fry

Chop the onion and crush the garlic. Add to small pan with a sprinkle of herbs and a couple of tablespoons of oil, fry the mixture together. As soon as the onions are starting to brown add the tomatoes and tomato paste. Simmer for 15 minutes and then blend in a blender or with a stick blender if you like a smooth sauce , otherwise use as is as a base for pizza, or add to boiled pasta for a very quick meal which is much healthier than using a jar of sauce.

Here is mine cooking for making pizza for hungry teenage boys last Saturday.You can add salt and pepper to taste but we do that at the table since some people can't eat salt and others don't like pepper !

My challenge to you is :- Have you made tomato sauce ?

I think my challenge to me might be do you know how to switch off the date caption on your camera ?
