Basic Italian Tomato Pasta Sauce
1 onion, finely chopped
1 large garlic clove, finely chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tin of tomatoes, liquidised or a 500ml pack of passata
Optional flavourings: capers, black olives, chilli flakes, chopped anchovies
Gently soften the onion in the olive oil over a low-medium heat. Add the garlic once the onion is transluscent or begins to brown. Add the tomatoes and rinse the can/pack out with a little water to make the sauce slightly thinner than you'd want for a sauce, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes or more for a stronger flavour. If the sauce is too watery after 20 minutes, take the lid off and simmer to reduce a little. If the sauce is too thick add a little water.
I served with with spaghetti and grated cheddar tonight, and had the kids admitting that they liked it just as much as bolognaise sauce.
