Simple Spicy Tomato Sauce.

This is ideal for a super quick midweek pasta. It’s made with fresh tomatoes so its lovely and light with a good bit of warmth from the chilli.


1 Onion Finely Diced

5 Big Fresh Vine Tomatoes

1 Red Chilli (seeds in or out up to you)

1 Tsp Tomato Puree

Pinch of Smoked Paprika

Salt and Pepper to Taste

Sweat of the onion in plenty of olive oil, add in the paprika and the chilli and season well with salt and pepper.

When the onions are nice and soft add in the tomato puree and fry for a few minutes.

Releasing that flavour!

Meanwhile, roughly chop the tomatoes.

So fresh and juicy!

Wizz up in a food processor and add in to the onions.

Let the machines do the work.

Bring up to the boil and let it bubble for a few minutes. Serve with your favourite pasta.

Quick and tasty.

You can get creative with the basic sauce. Try adding in bacon, mushrooms, sundried tomatoes, red peppers, a little lemon zest or any herbs you like.

Have fun and enjoy!
