This was gorgeous, lovely consistency, I used passata with added basil, poured it over cooked pasta with grated cheese on the top - delicious! Very quick if you are in a hurry!

easily the tastiest and easiest pasta sauce I have ever had! I too added a bit of garlic but didn't add chilli....the sauce is so simple I didn't want to over power the taste.

What an amazing recipe, so easy and much better than pre-made sauces! Added 3 cloves of garlic and a few basil leaves, the cloves I added before roasting, the basil afterwards. After they came out of the oven, I added some extra olive oil for moist and some crème fraîche so it got a little creamy :)

This was very nice. I roased some garlic with the peppers and onions and used fresh thyme. I too added a slug of balsamic vinegar. I felt that the sauce needed to be ever so slightly sweeter so will add some sugar next time. I like the idea of adding chillies too but the children won't eat it then!

I felt the sauce was really sweet on it's own but I didn't balsamic vinegar.

Everyone loved it. Added tuna for one, vegetables for another and left the rest plain. Easy to make and empty plates afterwards. Perfect.
