    I am looking for some suggestions for a low syn pasta sauce.

    I have the remains from todays roast chicken, some bacon medalions, veg and the pasta just need a sauce. Before I used to use the domino's stir in pasta sauces but I don't know if they are naughty or not!

    I have never been able to make a suitable pasta sauce from scratch. They are always too watery and never stick to the pasta like a shop bought sauce does.

    Any suggestions for a nice tomatoe based sauce please?

    I make a sauce at work;

    tinned tomatoes
    dollop of puree
    chopped swede
    chopped courgette
    chopped carrot
    chopped onion
    chopped red pepper
    mixed herbs.

    Bung it all in a pan, bring to the boil then simmer til the veggies are soft, allow to cool a little. Blitz it in the blender. Voila. You may find you need to add a little water. I make it in the steamer at work so don't need to but in a pan you might.

    You can add chilli powder, curry powder, tumeric or any other spice you like to adjust the flavour. Serve with a little chopped coriander on top.

    I use this sauce in bolognese, lasagnes, curries, the list is endless.

    I make mine by frying chopped onion and mushrooms till soft, adding in about half a bottle of passata and a good sprinkle of Italian seasoning and basil, with a little water to thin it out just to cook the veg through. It's good to go in about 15 minutes.

    Sautee some onions, garlic and chillies in a little olive oil (synned) and add a couple of tins of plum tomatoes. Simmer for 20 minutes on a low heat. Season with salt, pepper, a bit of stock cube and a pinch of splenda. Add some chopped basil and stir in your chicken. Voila!

    My basic tomato sauce is really easy and can be adapted to make several variations

    can chopped or plum tomatoes
    splash soy sauce
    splash worcesterhire sauce
    stock cube
    pinch sweetener
    sprinkle of schwartz italian garlic seasoning
    salt/pepper

    Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for about 10 mins. If you keep on reducing the sauce it also makes a great topping for a pizza.

    warm your leftovers in the pan, crumble a chicken oxo on them and add some oregano, then when they're warmed through, add some passata.
