Ingredients

  • 2 28 oz San Marzano Whole tomato cans.
  • 2 28 oz Passata cans or tomato puree.
  • Some fresh herbs of your choice. The quantity is completely up to you.
  • 2 Tbsp of olive oil.
  • 1 Large red onion.
  • 1 Garlic clove.
  • 2 Tbsp of good quality red wine.
  • Salt & Pepper to taste.

Instructions

  • Start by warming up your olive oil in a deep sauce pan/pot on medium heat.
  • Chop up your onions and add throw them in your pot.
  • Once the onions start becoming a little more transparent lower the heat and keep on stirring.
  • Make sure to keep an eye on your onions, if you feel that they are starting to burn add a tbsp of hot water.
  • Keep cooking for about 15 minutes or until completely caramelised like in the photo above.
  • Add your wine and stir.
  • Once the alcohol evaporates add your tomatoes (puree and whole).
  • Let it simmer on low heat for at least 50 minutes or until the sauce thickens. Stirring occasionally.
  • Salt and pepper to your taste.
  • Turn your stove off.
  • You can use an immersion blender to smooth it up if you want, I like my sauce a little chunky so I use a potato masher to crush the tomatoes.
  • Now is the time to add your favourite fresh herbs. I use a mix of basil, parsley and oregano that I grow on my kitchen window.
  • This sauce can keep in the fridge for about a week, the sooner you refrigerate it, the longer it will last. It can serve easily 15 portions, or up to 20, depending on how generous you are with it.
