Marie has very kindly sent in her NC pasta sauce recipe which looks absolutely fantastic: it’s a gorgeous, sweet sauce. It is free on No Count and just 1sp per serving on WW Flex.
Ingredients (serves 4):
1kg of very ripe tomatoes – chopped if large
an onion, medium, cut into wedges
a red pepper, seeds removed and chopped
a tbsp olive oil
a tsp dried basil
half a garlic bulb, not peeled
a tsp granulated sweetener such as Truvia
salt and black pepper
- Put everything in a large roasting tin, lined with baking parchment, drizzle the oil and stir.
- Place in a medium oven (160-180C) for 45-60 minutes, check every 20 minutes or so: you want the vegetables soft and just starting to brown on the edges.
- Remove from the oven. Allow to cool and take the garlic out.
- Put the vegetables in a food processor, squeeze the garlic pulp out of the skin into the sauce and liquidise till thick and smooth.
This can be used as a basis for your favourite pasta dish or on a pizza. You could add a few chilli flakes for a spicy sauce.
It’s a great way to use up overripe tomatoes!
