    heres a syn free recipe, i know it has tomato puree bu isnt even half a syn per serving

    1 onion, finely chopped
    2 garlic cloves, crushed
    1 x 398g / 14oz can chopped tomatoes
    1 level tbsp tomato puree
    1 tsp chopped basil or oregano
    salt and ground black pepper
    ½ tsp artificial sweetene

    Put all the ingredients in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer gently for 20
    minutes.

    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 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

    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.
