Great, easy dish that's so healthy. My 3 year old non-veggie eating daughter loved it. It helps to make sure the peppers are quite chargrilled to enhance sweet flavour.

Lovely, I cooked cubed chicken and mushrooms in the pasata then added blended paper mix. I added vegetable bouillion powder, balsamic vinager 1/4 teasoon sugar to the sauce prio to cooking. Once i had mixed the pasta and sauce I grated fresh parmesan on the top and served with asparagus (to help with our 5 a day) and crusty bread. Yum!!!!!

Easy, chunky sauce. Added chilli and garlic but will miss out the chilli next time as it din't work too well with the sweetness of the pepper.

Delicious, super-healthy and so easy to prepare! I also added 2 cloves of garlic and served with a handful of fresh basil leaves and thinly sliced spring onion. It is perfect with minced beef. I made double of the amount and froze one half for a lazy-after-work evening! My fussy husband absolutely loved it!

Superb! I also added the chilli flakes, garlic and finished off with a good season and fresh basil. Much better than the processed stuff.

This sauce is also great over fish and poultry or on a pizza when you're bored with the regular tomato spread. Top recipe in my book! EvaInNL

A doddle to prepare, this is a delicious, versatile sauce. I sprinkled in some chili flakes for extra bite and a crushed garlic clove.
