    Re: Best pasta sauce?

    My favourite home made one starts with those oil soaked sundried tomatoes and peppers, heated with chopped onion, garlic, oregano and some good quality tomatoe puree. Once the onions have softened, but before they start to brown, add a tin of chopped tomatoes, some onion salt and italian herb mix and then cook for about 20 minutes until the sauce has reduced about 25% (it's a judgement thing but basically you're looking for the chopped tomatoes to have completely broken up and the sauce to be almost a paste-like consistancy)

    The thing is once you start making your own, unless you need to simmer it for a while (often you do) it's no effort whatsoever.

    It's cheaper, more fun and you get very good at it. Plus lady points too.

    The last time I bought some ready made sauce it was by Seeds of Change. They weren't bad. Sometimes Lloyd Grossman was a bit sour.
