Making your own pasta sauce is so easy. It really is a matter of chuck it all in and let it cook away.

I love this one as I pack a lot of vegetables into it so perfect for the kiddies. I often purée this though so they can’t see all the veg. 
Use it with mince, over meatballs, with pasta/zoodles and a little cheese, on your chicken parmigiana, pizza sauce… The list is endless. 
I make a double batch and freeze into portions. You can bottle it in jars and vacuum seal if preferred.

    Love this recipe!!! We use it as our pizza sauce. Makes enough to freeze for at least 6-7 pizza nights for a family of four and it’s delicious. Also the whole time I know the kids are getting at least some veges 🙂
