This is my tomato pasta sauce recipe that is sweet at the first bite and then fades to hot. You can use it as a base to which you can add vegetables.


Serves: 4 

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tablespoon chilli flakes
  • 800g crushed tomatoes
  • 185g tomato paste
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery salt
  • 3/4 cup (125g) brown sugar, divided

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. In a saucepan, combine olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper and chilli flakes and lightly saute over high heat.
  2. Reduce heat to low and mix in tomatoes and tomato paste. Stir in celery salt, salt and pepper. Start with 1/2 cup of the brown sugar and mix into the sauce. Gradually add brown sugar, depending on acidity of tomatoes. First taste of sauce should be sweet.
