A little while ago I shared our amazing $1.50 pasta sauce. I’m so proud that I’ve been to get it down to .25c pasta sauce since we’ve managed to grow almost all the ingredients ourselves.
Soon we will even be able to add our own coriander seeds since I’ve let the plant go to seed (as if you let coriander do anything it just bolts when you aren’t looking).
5 small homegrown onions
1 whole clove of homegrown garlic
1 batch of fresh tomatoes (about 2 cans worth maybe 1kg)
¼ tsp paprika
¼ tsp ground coriander seed
Pepper and salt to taste
15 fresh oregano leaves
1 Tsp fresh thyme
Finally dice the onions, fry in plenty of olive oil when cooked add spices and garlic fry for a minute then add tomatoes. When bubbling add the herbs.
To make a pasta sauce cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
To make a pizza sauce uncover and simmer for 20 minutes stirring so it doesn’t burn.
This was the yummiest sauce I have EVER made. So yummy that John and I ate it on toast as a spread. I have frozen half the mixture in a glass jar in the freezer (remember not to overfill glass jars and leave the lid off until the contents are frozen then put the lid back on) and the other half is for pizza for tonight.
