    can anyone help me make a pasta sauce that isn't too sharp or bitter? I usually use onion, mushroom, mixed herbs and passata, but its really too tangy for me. any suggestions?

    ooo i make a lovely sauce that i mix with pasta and then cook in the oven as a pasta bake

    You need :
    about 2/3rd's bottle of pasatta
    2 cloves garlic
    1 red chilli
    2 small onions
    3 tablespoons of chopped basil
    2 teaspoons of sweetner
    1 tablespoon of oregano

    Chop your onions, crush garlic, deseed chilli and chop very finely
    Fry the whole lot in frylight for 3/4 mins
    Stir in pasata and bring to the boil
    Reduce to simmer - add basil, sweetener, oregano, salt and pepper and leave to simmer while cooking pasta

    Cook your pasta so its a little uncooked, drain and stir it in with 2 tablespoons of zero fat fromage frais. Mix in the pasta sauce and then put the whole lot in dish and cover with cheese - i use 84 g as mine and oh allowance and then cook in oven at 180 for 20 mins - yum!

    Quite plain and simple ingredients but i find it very tasty :)

    A bit of sugar or sweetner takes the 'edge' off the tomatoes :) Maybe try that :)
