Easy Tomato Sauce

OMG this Easy Tomato Sauce recipe is so easy and so delicious. In fact it’s Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy

I make it All the time! It literally takes 10 minutes and it’s sweet, comforting and perfect over pasta or for your Bolognese.

It’s the perfect base for so many recipes I promise. And once you have made it once you’ll realise its so good – you will (for sure) make it all the time

Tomato Skins

Also dare I say it? When I find loads of cherry tomatoes in the fridge and they are on their way out I make this sauce and freeze it.

Also many people have asked about the skins?

Well because you are using cherry tomatoes they are so soft, no need at all to remove them. Also this is great as they are packed with flavour and also extra fibre (winner winner)

Easy Tomato Sauce

You can of course make it with normal sized tomatoes, I just find it’s not quite as sweet!

And you may then have to remove the skins?


If you’re trying to be healthy and drop some pounds  it’s the best. Zero fat and delightful.  It gives you so many opportunities to use it in amazing Slimming style dinners.

No loss of flavour. Lets face it, who doesn’t love pasta & tomato sauce!!

It one of life’s necessities. So if you are stuck one evening and have little time this is the ideal recipe for all your slimming pasta recipes!

This easy tomato sauce is so versatile as you can add anything to it! Try chilli, try basil, try herbs – so so good!

Why not boil some pasta – fry off some bacon, mushrooms and create the most delicious easy dinner, also olives are good too….
