    My wife and I created this recipe because we don't like thick pasta sauce. You can adjust the amount of water to your own taste.

    Serves: 6 

    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 4 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 large onion, diced
    • 1 large green capsicum, chopped
    • 6 fresh basil leaves, minced
    • 1 bunch spring onions, diced
    • 1 bay leaf
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 600g tomato pasta sauce
    • 2 (400g) tins stewed tomatoes
    • 2 1/2 cups (625ml) water
    • 2 teaspoons white sugar

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:1hour 

    1. Pour the olive oil into a frypan and place over medium heat. Cook the garlic in the hot oil 1 to 2 minutes; add the onion, capsicum, basil, spring onion, and bay leaf and cook until the capsicum softens; season with salt and pepper.
    2. Stir in the tomato sauce, tinned tomatoes, water and sugar; continue to cook 20 to 30 minutes, stirring every 5 to 10 minutes.
