Hi I am a newbie and have been doing SW for 3 weeks, going ok. I am looking for some help as I would like some nice low or nil syn sauces for pasta to have on green days. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. :queen:
1 red onions
2 peppers (any colour!)
2 tins of tomatoes
Chop them all into similar sized pieces. Stick them all in a pan with some garlic (I use easy garlic) and a pinch of chilli flakes. Pour over 2 tins of chopped tomatoes, stir well and simmer for 20mins.
Sardinian pasta sauce - adapted for slimming world
This is a recipe my Sardinian friend Gemma gave me adapted - using spray light instead of olive oil!
I'm going to give you the amounts to make plenty so you can keep it in the fridge or to feed about 8 people
Peel 5/6 carrots - roughly chop
Peel and chop two large onions
add either a large leek or a stick of celery
(take strings out of celery) - chop,
roughly chop four garlic cloves
add 2 teaspoons of dried basil (or fresh)
Put all above ingredients into a very large plastic jug or bowl. Spray on fry light and stir through. cover with cling film and cook in the microwave for 20 mins
Remove - add 4 tins of plum tomatoes, stir through and put back in microwave for another 20 mins.
Food process in batches until smooth.
Serve with spaghetti. Put about l teaspoon of olive oil per person and grated parmesan or gran padano into spaghetti (count oil/cheese as syns) and if possible some fresh chopped basil. stir through and add a good quantity of hot sauce to cover pasta thickly. Voila!! its beautiful.
You can also add some pieces of swede to sauce, but it must always contain carrot, onion and either leek or celery. Never put mushrooms in it - just not done!!
Non slimmers can add grated parmesan on top as well!! Bon appetit.
Looks a long recipe, but its not - so simple - the hardest part is preparing the veg
