I thought I'd add to the healthy recipe collection. Shop-bought pasta sauce seems to have a lot of sugar in it, so I sometimes make my own.
This makes enough for two people.
1 chopped onion
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
As much chopped garlic as you want*
A bit of chopped chilli
Optional extra - Any fresh tomatoes that have gone a
little squooshy but are still good, chopped up
We also usually add some low-fat bacon, either very lean pork bacon or turkey bacon.
Grill the bacon. Cook the onion, garlic and chilli in a little oil
or low-fat cooking spray, then cut up the grilled bacon and add to the pan along with the tin of tomatoes and the fresh tomatoes, if using. Simmer until it thickens.
*We use these. The ginger is very good for curries too.
The other good thing about ths recipe is that since we generally have dried pasta, garlic, chilli and onions already in the kitchen, the only necessary extra expense is a tin of tomatoes, which costs 21p. This is a good meal for the end of the month when there's nothing left in the bank!
