This sauce has a real tomatoey kick to it!
It is also my pantry go to sauce when I need a quick dinner, it is seriously tasty, just adjust the sugar, salt and pepper to your own taste.
To make this gluten free just use gluten free pasta, to make it dairy free and vegan just omit the mozzarella.
2 tablespoons oil from the sun dried tomatoes
1 onion, diced finely
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
a pinch of chilli flakes
150g sundried tomatoes, roughly chopped
750mls passata/sieved tomatoes
1 tablespoon tomato paste
salt and pepper
100g fresh mozzarella, drained, dried and torn
Heat a large frying pan over a medium flame.
Add the oil and once hot add the onions and cook until soft.
Add the garlic and cook for a couple of minutes.
Add the chopped sundried tomatoes, oregano and chilli flakes followed by the passata and tomato paste.
Season well and bring up to a simmer.
Simmer gently until thickened, check seasoning and add a little sugar if needed.
Cook your pasta as per instructions, drain and tip into the frying pan, stir well and tear some fresh mozzarella, if using, over the top.
