Tips

This recipe is a good way to hide vegetables! Abi helped me to create this and was surprised to find she loved it. You could add a little flour to stabilise the sauce. I don't use it, preferring to reduce the sauce down so there is no spare liquid.

If you like olives, add 6 or 8 per portion. Halve or slice them and use as a garnish, or add with the tomatoes before simmering.

This freezes well so is good for making individual portions ahead of time.


Directions

Pour olive oil into a pan and add the finely diced/shredded onion, carrot, pepper and garlic. Cook gently until the vegetables soften and the onion becomes transparent.
Add the chopped tomatoes (including juice) and stock cube. Simmer 20 minutes, allowing the sauce to reduce.
Liquidise to a smooth sauce (if preferred).
To season - Add enough lemon juice to counteract the sweetness and bring out the flavour. Add black pepper to taste.

Serve on pasta or rice (not included in this recipe) topped with the grated cheese and more black pepper if liked.
