Sun Dried Tomato Pasta Sauce Recipe

I love this recipe as an easy pasta sauce which can also be blitzed up to use as a pizza sauce and store portions in the freezer for future easy meals. 

1 x Tin chopped Tomatoes
1 x Onion
Mace - half a teaspoon
Cayenne 1/4 teaspoon
2 x Cloves Garlic
Half a Pepper
Sun dried tomatoes x 4
Vegetable Stock 250ml

1 x Table Spoon Tomato PurĂ©e
Bunch of Basil - ripped (better for flavour to rip rather than chop)
Splash of Balsamic Vinegar 

Saute onion, garlic, pepper and the sundried tomatoes

Pour in the rest of the ingredients except the basil and bring to the boil

Simmer for 20 minutes then add the basil and simmer for another 5 minutes 

Should look something like above. I use this stirred in cooked pasta with a ton of grated cheese!
