    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:)

    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. :)

    I find all sauces high in syns and prefer to make my own - they are usually cheaper and taste better as well

    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.

    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.
