  • 3 tins chopped tomatoes
  • 6 tbls olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 4 tbls dried oregano
  • 1 tsp anchovy essence
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • salt & pepper


    1. Put all ingredients into a large microwaveable dish and mix well.
    2. Cover with cling film and pierce several times.
    3. Microwave on high for 25 mins.
    4. Blitz with hand blender (leave unblitzed if desired).
    5. Use as tomato base for pizza or pasta. I like to fry diced chorizo/peppered salami, add tomato sauce, black olives and fresh basil for a tasty pasta sauce. Add a little creme fraiche or mascapone for a creamier sauce. Add your own favourite ingredients..... be creative!
    6. You can store this in a sealed container in the fridge for a few days, alternatively the sauce could be stored for longer in sterilised jars.
