For anybody that reads my blog regularly you will know I run a couple of craft groups over on facebook. This month the Crafting Techniques group is taking everybody into the kitchen to make some sauce - any sauce is acceptable as long as it is made from scratch and a link to some instructions is provided, preferably, in case others in the group would like to try making it themselves. So I made a pasta sauce. As I have an allotment I was able o use some of my own home-grown produce for the sauce, however with the poor weather I did not have enough tomatoes so had to use some tinned tomatoes also. Here are the ingredients used:
First the herbs were chopped finely.
Then all the vegetables were chopped. Ten the recipe told me to fry all these vegetables, but not the herbs? I could ave chopped the herbs while the veg was frying and saved a bit of time!
After about 10 mins I added the tomatoes, seasoning and red wine vinegar. I also managed to splash some on the side of the hob - :( More cleaning up for me lol.
Add the herbs once it is cooked and stir in - it doesn't really look much different from when you first start cooking it to when it is finished, but the texture is different.
Finally add to spaghetti lol.

My OH says it is very tasty and he is pretty hard to please lol.
