    It's always good to keep some basic tomato pasta sauce in the freezer. You can use it over pasta, in lasagne or on pizza. Delicious and simple.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • 3 tablespoons olive oil
    • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
    • 4 (400g) tins whole peeled tomatoes
    • 280g tomato paste
    • handful chopped fresh parsley
    • 2 teaspoons salt
    • 1/2 cup (125ml) red wine

    Directions
    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min

    This is a great sauce particularly becacuse it's not runny. The extra freezes well and complements bread sticks.  -  08 Oct 2008

    Quartering the tomatoes so that they melt into the sauce is an improvement, but this is an excellent sauce.  -  08 Oct 2008
