Clever Tomato Sauce

I was a bit bored today so I decided as I had bought all the veggies required, I would make the clever tomato sauce in the Ella’s Cookbook. I have to say I will never ever buy another pasta sauce again. This recipe was ridiculously cheap to make and makes a huge amount of sauce. I tasted it as I went and I was blown away. This sauce can be used cold with chips, you can leave it a little chunky for a good salsa with Doritos, or just stir in to some pasta. I’ve sectioned and frozen 8 small portions to use for Sophie with pasta for lunch in the week and another larger box for my bolognese. Enjoy!

Dice the carrot, squash and tomatoes. Boil the squash, carrot and peas until tender and drain. Add the baked beans and stir well before using a hand mixer. Or in my case, my chopper, which worked just as well!

My awesome mini chopper (£8 in Asda brand new). I don’t have a hand blender but it worked just as well

This is the peas, beans, carrot and squash blended up. Looks like baby poop but tastes amazing!

Return the mix to the pan, low heat and add the fresh and chopped tomatoes. Keep them on the heat until the tomatoes are softened.

Using a blender (hand or otherwise) pour the new mix in and blend until smooth. Et Voila! You have an amazing sauce!
