I use a recipe given to me by an Italian friend for a really simple one, fry garlic gently as much as you fancy, a tin of tomato puree/, tin of chopped tomatoes/jar of passata, any good herbs you fancy I use oregano, basil, thyme, cook down and throw in fresh or that frozen basil.
Now you have the base thats great just run through pasta and served with salad.

But then sometimes I make a bacon and mushroom pasta, just fry lean bacon and mushrooms. Add the sauce ingredients as described in order after the bacon is cooked.

I also do a ham and courgette mix. Just add your superfree in the form of a green salad of incorporate in the sauce.
Good sauces tend to be the simple ones. I also use passata the glass jars as they are good quality and give a smoother sauce than the tinned toms. Just replace.

Also on my blog is a veggie pasta sauce and pasta bake thats yummy.

If you fancy something creamy cook some Bacon onions and then run through some Philli. Or if you have a few sins to play with use white wine and ww creme fraiche and some cheese. Yummy

Here's my favourite, meatballs and spaghetti. I used quorn Italian meatballs but you could use meat if you prefer:

Free on extra easy

Quorn Italian meatballs
1 red onion sliced
1 yellow pepper cut in to small strips
Basil
1 red chilli finely chopped
1 tspn oregano
400g chopped tomatoes
2 cloves garlic crushed
1tbspn Parmesan (1.5 syns)
Wholemeal spaghetti


Dry fry the garlic, chilli, oregano, onion and chopped basil stalks until the onions are softened, add the tomatoes and simmer on low heat for a couple of mins. In the meantime cook the spaghetti in salted water. Place the meatballs in a microwave container, cover with cling film, pierce in a couple of places and microwave on full power for 2 minutes.

Let the meatballs rest for 1 minute then add to the sauce and simmer for a couple more minutes. Drain the spaghetti then add the meatballs and sauce, stir through and serve with a scattering of basil leaves and the parmesan. Delish ???

I rustled one up lastnight just using:
- Passatta
- Garlic
- Chilli
- Red Onion
- Peppers
- Sweetcorn
- Chicken Breast Pieces

I fried off the onions and chicken breast in FryLight, then added the carton of passatta, garlic and chopped chilli. Let the mixture bubble, then stir in the peppers and sweetcorn. To serve, simply stir into pasta.

It was to die for :drool: and free! xx
