Delicious and easy. I added garlic flakes and chilli flakes and then stirred through some cooked mushrooms and smoked bacon and served with pasta. So easy and sooo tasty!!

Lovely and very easy - one I will add to my repertiore. I added a few cloves of garlic and fresh basil instead of thyme. I made double the batch of sauce and used one portion with pasta and cheese then used the leftover sauce and added mushrooms which was also lovely and had seconds for lunch at work.

I absolutely love this sauce! I live on my own, so I portion it up and bang it in the freezer - perfect just as a pasta sauce with some grated mozzarella on top. Yum!

Really easy and tasty. A delicious way to eat veg, i blitzed it to a puree so no-one could tell it was veg, went down a treat.

Not bad little sauce. I served it with Chicken Stuffed with Spinach & Feta and each dish lifted the other one. Not bad experiment all in all!

Easy, tasty and low fat! Much better than opening a jar of pasta sauce. I added garlic and chilli to the peppers and onions before roasting them.
