Homemade Tomato & Basil Sauce

I had a bunch of tomatoes i really needed to use up so i decided to make this simple yet delicious sauce, you can literally use it for just about anything, from pasta dishes, casseroles or used on your pizza base anything really. Ill actually be using the sauce in a Slowcooker chicken casserole tomorrow!

What you'll need-
Tomatoes as many as you've got in any shape or size.
1 onion
1 courgette (this is totally optional you could just use tomatoes & onion).
olive oil
salt & pepper


Get yourself a large tray and slice your tomatoes, courgette & onion and place them on the tray nice and evenly.

 Now time to season! drizzle over some olive oil, season with salt & pepper and chop up some fresh basil, dried is fine.. you can even throw in a couple of garlic cloves if you'd like for extra flavour.

Roast in an 150c oven for 1hour, turn oven off after an hour and leave tray in there to cool.

Once cool scrape all ingredients from tray into your blender, i use the Ninja  food processor very similar to this one. The vegetables should look all yummy and caramelised.

This is optional but i quite like to add a heaped teaspoon of tomato puree it really makes the sauce lovely and rich.

Whiz it up in the blender and it should turn out something like this!
I pop mine in a sterilised jar and in the fridge. Should last a few days or you can cook a big batch and freeze it.

Hope you enjoyed this simple recipe let me know if you give it ago or if you'd like more!
