  • My husband really enjoyed

    My husband really enjoyed this sauce.  I wasn't so keen because all I could really taste was the canned tomatoes.  I'll try this again with some substituions as suggested above.

    Used this recipe as the base. Used fresh cherry tomatoes and tinned, added a tin of kidney beans and a small amount of ground chillies. Really yummy. Thanks for posting such an easy "out of the pantry" suggestion.
