Basic tomato sauce
Once you make this simple recipe you will never go back to jarred sauce. It is so easy, quick and cheap to make and can be used for a multitude of dishes, from pizza toppings to lasagne.
Nutrition (per serving)
Chopped tomato2 cans
Tomato puree2 tablespoon
Dried oregano3 tsp
Garlic puree or ready chopped garlic1 tsp
salt and pepper1 pinch
Add all ingredients to large pot and stir until combined, leave to simmer for 15 minutes until thickened.
Take off the heat and allow to cool completely.
I always make this in advance of cooking things like meatballs and lasagnes, spaghetti Bolognese, as it needs to be completely cool before going into the bags.
I usually triple the recipe, so I have plenty for all dishes that I plan to make.
Once this sauce is made, take a few ladles out of the pot and put 1 ladle full into each small freezer bag add some extra oregano and an extra 2 teaspoons full of tomato puree to each bag. These bags can be labelled and frozen flat, alongside pizza bases.

Hi, you didnt add the garlic in the video? Can it be left out or is it better to add it? Thankyou
I like to add garlic but its up to you and your taste
I have just made this and despite putting in Stevia Sweetener it has a really sharp sour taste.
What have I done wrong? Thank you
Often the cheaper tinned tomatoes will have a slightly sour taste, if you can, buy quality tinned tomatoes they are often sweeter. If not, add a little more sugar to taste. Hope that helps!
Hi, once in pouches and put in the freezer can you then cook this from frozen?
Yes you can, not a problem. Enjoy!
