I had a lovely treat last night!
I was busy studying, doing that final push, to get all the work finished and submitted this weekend! I was feeling pretty exhausted and hungry, when some glorious smells started drifting up from the kitchen!
"Mmmm, I thought, smells like tomato and chilli sauce!", And it was! Graham was downstaris cooking his key dish!
What a star!
It's a simple tomato sauce with a kick of chilli and you really can't beat it. It's a really budget dish too, although you'd never guess it when you taste it.
Graham's Tomato and Chilli Sauce
2 onions, one finely chopped, one roughly sliced
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 red chilli,(seeds left in) finely chopped
1 400g/14oz tin chopped tomatoes
3 tbsp tomato puree
A splosh of wine (red or white)
1 handful freshly torn basil
Salt & pepper to taste
Freshly grated veggie or vegan parmesan
- Saute the onion, garlic and chilli in the olive oil, until the onion has softened.
- Add the tin of tomatoes, tomato puree, wine and cook gently for 20 minutes until the sauce has thickened.
- Season to taste and add the basil at the last minute.
- Serve with freshly cooked pasta and grated parmesan.
Thanks Graham! It was delicious!
