Amatriciana Sauce

Untitled  facebookzinstagramzpinterestz

Who wants dinner on the table in under 20 minutes and costs less than $10 to serve 4-6? This is the recipe for you.

This is one of my favourite pasta sauces served through large pasta shapes (so teh baby can devour them – he loves this!) or through zucchini noodles.  It is so versatile and makes a great pizza base sauce too.

This is enough sauce for 500-600g of pasta (even more if like a less “saucy” pasta). This makes a great amount for large families or large dinner parties. Serve with salad and garlic bread to stretch it further if needed.

This sauce is perfect for the freezer so if you wont use it all in one serving simply freeze in portions and thaw and reheat as required. It makes cooking a last minute dinner very easy.

    Made this week to go with home made pasta – very easy to make, quick & tasty. I added 1/4tsp crushed chilli instead which was enough to give a nice flavour & suit a 2 year old.

    I really loved this and will be using it as my basic pasta sauce base from now on. I used half a chilli but will go the whole one next time and I also added some fresh herbs from the garden. Next time I will add some prawns too. Super fast and yum! Thanks Peta 🙂

    I love this pasta sauce. So tasty. I’ve even made it minus bacon (when I have had none on hand) and minus chilli (as kids aren’t a fan) and it’s still delicious. Freezes well too.
