Super Speedy Tomato Pasta Sauce

So often the pasta sauces that you buy on the supermarket shelves are full of so much sugar and unnecessary ingredients that aren’t great for your body. It is so easy to whip a up a batch of your own tomato sauce that you can keep in the fridge for up to a week – ready to go for any last minute mid week dinners.

This one has loads of hidden veggies and flavours it is a great accompaniment to pasta, veggies, fish or eggs. I promise that it won’t take more than 30 mins start to finish and it will taste delicious.
