Ingredients

  • 1 large onion
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1kg very ripe tomatoes
  • a selection of herbs, such as basil, chives and parsley

Step by step

Get ahead
Freeze for up to 6 months.
  1. Roughly chop the onion and garlic then put them into a large pan with the oil. Cook over a low heat for 10 minutes to soften.
  2. Roughly chop the tomatoes and tear the herbs into big pieces. Add these to the pan, put on the lid and cook over a low heat for 1 hour until everything is soft.
  3. Press the mixture through a sieve over a bowl (discard the pulp). Rinse out the pan; add the sieved liquid. Simmer until the sauce has thickened and reduced by half.
  4. Season well. Cool completely before freezing.
Chef quote
This is my go-to sauce when I have a glut of tomatoes. Great with pasta or meatballs
