    2 tins of Chopped Tomatoes
    1 Brown Onion
    1 tsp Chopped Garlic
    60 ml Tomato Paste
    30 ml Extra Virgin Oil
    1 tsp of Dry Oregano
    1/4 tsp Black Pepper
    Pinch of Chilli Flakes

    Cooking Instructions

    1. Peal your onion and just slice it in half, then throw it into a thick bottom or cast iron cooking pot.
    2. Add the two tins of chopped tomatoes and the Extra Virgin Olive Oil and stir.
    3. Turn on the heat and start to bring it to the boil.
    4. Add the rest of the ingredients to the pan, Garlic, Oregano, Black Pepper & Tomato Paste.
    5. Mix this together with a wooden spoon.
    6. When the sauce is boiling reduce to a low simmer.
    7. You need to simmer this sauce for at least 45 minutes, the longer the better.
    8. When the sauce is finished remove the onion and then if you wish you can blend the sauce, I just get a potato masher in there and mash it down.
