I bought a box of tomatoes from the vege man yesterday and am about to use this recipe a second time. I particularly like this recipe because it produces a rich red sauce. The recipe I used back in February from my Thrifty Cook Book is lovely but has a lot of butter in it and it is more of an orangey colour. This sauce is my favourite so far, however when unable to get capsicums I would use the previous recipe.
Valarie's Pasta Sauce
5 medium onions
4 medium capsicums
1 tbs Basil
1 tbs salt
1 tbs oregano
4 tbs sugar
1. Chop tomatoes, onions, capsicums and place in a large pot.
2. Bring to the boil.
3. Reduce heat and simmer.
4. Add salt, basil and oregano.
5. Add sugar 1 tablespoon at a time, stir and wait 15 minutes.
6. Cook 2 - 3 hours.
When cooked pour into hot sterilised jars, put lids on and preserve in a boiling water bath (in boiling water in a vacola unit) for 20 minutes. Allow jars to cool in the water, a vacuum will be created as the water and contents of the jars cool.
I will take some pics as I make it and load them later!!
