You could bypass the tomato puree syns by using passata instead of puree and tinned tomatoes, it's thicker than chopped tomatoes and makes a lovely rich sauce for free
Thanks - wow thats a lot!!
and thanks for the recipie, much better
and sorry for putting it on the wrong thread - i'm a newbie x
I'm a huge ragu fan and was gutted that it was so highly synned. I use passata and season it loads. I actually really like it.
passatta is our saviour!
I bought some passata after reading yor advice yesterday - yet to try it but I think it will be much better than having to use such a large aount of syns
Thank you everyone x
i dont think thats really high for a sauce really, if u use half of the ragu traditional sauce for a bolognese its like 6 syns, about the same as half a jar of dolmio light xxx
I find all sauces high in syns and prefer to make my own - they are usually cheaper and taste better as well
i do like to make my own sauces for chicken and things sometimes but dont really use my syns for chocolate i use most of them on things like sauces and my pitfall...chocolate spread! xxxx
all ready made sauces are going to be high, because they dont qualify for any free food allowance.
So you are better off making your own.
Damn it!!! I just bought a jar of Ragu thinking it wasn't bad.....WRONG!!
I make this sauce all of the time, in fact it so much nicer than the jar sauces and totally free.
Its also a good base for chillis and currys.
