Basic Pasta Sauce Recipe Needed.

(6 Posts)

I have bought 24 tins of Napolina chopped tinned tomatoes (currently on offer at Asda 4 for £1) and I want to make a large batch of basic pasta sauce to freeze. I have googled several recipes but most dont seem to require cooking long enough to 'reduce'. I dont want the sauce to be runny (would like the consistency of 'Dolmio'). Does anyone have a tried and tested recipe that produces a thickish sauce. Thanks in advance for any help.

I'd just amend the recipes and cook it until it is as thick as you want it.

You could try adding chopped carrot and celery as well as onion - more bulk should make for a thicker, less runny sauce. In any case, just keep simmering until it reduces.

I thought I had a good deal at Tesco where the tins were half price (halfprice so 49p a tin) but the Asda deal is much better - gutted I missed that.

Jamies recipe is good

Thanks ladies - the Jamie Oliver recipe sounds just the job.
