Hearty Italian style tomato sauce

This is a great go-to recipe for a tomato based Italian style sauce.  The uses for this sauce are endless – you can have it with some zucchini “pasta”, pour over meat or with roast vegetables, have cold as a salsa.. the list goes on!  It’s super convenient to make a big batch of it and then freeze some to use later.

6-8 fresh tomatoes
1 red onion
1 red capsicum
3 cloves of garlic
Olive oil
½ cup fresh basil leaves


1)      Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celcius.

2)      Place the tomatoes, onion, capsicum and garlic in a roasting tray.

3)      Smother in olive oil, season with salt and pepper and roast in the oven for 40 minutes.

4)      Take the ingredients out of the oven and pour into a food processor.

5)      Add the fresh basil and process the sauce until it has a chunky consistency – voila!
