Simple Tomato Pasta Sauce

This is a really simple sauce. Some of my brood dislike ‘bits’ in their pasta so I grate the onion and garlic to hide them. I like to use this over a whole wheat fusilli pasta as the twirls hold the sauce well. I serve it with a big bowl of  salad.

Prep time: 5 minutes   Cook time: 30 minutes



  • 500g passata
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • ½ red onion
  • ¼ tsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • basil (optional)



Grate the garlic and onion.

Add everything to a pan and stir well.

Cook over a low heat for 30 minutes.

Stir in the basil if using.
