Simple tomato sauce

So versatile, this is a really good base for all tomato-based pasta dishes, lasagne, parmigiana and pizza sauce. Add some fresh basil at the end for some extra freshness and flavour. It is also incredibly easy to make, and can be stored in the fridge for up to a week and in the freezer for a month or so. 

2 cloves of garlic
2 tins of tomatoes
Splash of olive oil
Generous pinch of salt
Crack of black pepper
Sprinkling of chilli flakes
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

Peel and crush the garlic. Add a splash of olive oil and the garlic in a saucepan over medium heat, being careful not to burn the garlic. Add the tinned tomatoes, salt, pepper, chilli and oregano. Let it simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Taste for salt, pepper and chilli according to your taste. It’s as simple as that!
