    I have loads of passata. It's very healthy stuff.

    It's just ripened tomatoes, sieved, but a great base for tomato sauces for pastas.

    More healthy that fresh tomatoes too...especially if you add olive oil (syned no doubt :D) to release the lycopene antioxidents

    No, it's better to chew them then spit them through your teeth straight into a bowl before cooking. Mingled with saliva releases more of the goodies.

    Check for any amalgam from loose teeth fillings as they can be a bit too crunchy and add nothing to the nutrient values.

    You buy passata next to the tinned tomatoes. It comes in tetra-pak boxes and sometimes glass jars. I always keep some in. Great for making tomato sauces, especially when one tin of tomatoes isn't quite enough, but you don't want to add another one. I made a tomato/vegetable pasta sauce the other night. It had one tin of chopped tomatoes and about half a box of passata (plus all the vegetables and herbs, etc) and it was fab!

    i use it all the time for a bolognaise sauce just add sum herbs and that.
    dont ever buy the jars of cooking sauces mainly use passatta as a base and add to it

    Last night after WI I came home starving to make a quick omelette to find my partner had eaten all but 1 egg... not happy!!!
    Instead I cooked some pasta, and made a quick sauce using pasatta and it was lovely!
    Onion and garlic cooked, add mushrooms, passatta, cook through, a few dried herbs, grilled bacon chopped up and thrown in with the pasta, and there was our dinner in about 12 minutes flat! (The time the pasta took!)
    I always have passata for times like that, and for chilli, curry, bolognase etc.

    Passatta is great - it's been a revelation to me, so much you can do with it. It's really helped me keep on track. Much better than the tomato sauces in jars....packed with sugar!
