Quick Pasta Sauce

8 Nov

I diced the onion, and drained the boiling water off the pasta, but Bottomless Tummy 3 did the rest of this, she’s just shy of five years old.

  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 400g tins tomato (I buy cut tomatoes, in juice)
  • 1 Tbs sugar (adding sugar removes the thin, tinny taste of canned tomato)
  • 2 tsp dried basil
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 500g / 1lb meatballs
  • Salt to taste

Fry the onion until glassy.  Add the other ingredients, simmer until everything is hot.  Either serve over pasta, or stir pasta through, depending on the shape you use.  Bottomless Tummy 4 chose (gluten free) penne, so we stirred it through.
