Ultimate Veggie Pasta Sauce

This pasta sauce is loved by everyone, even kids, that normally dont eat their veggies. Great tasting fresh vegetables spiced with herbs and garlic.

You will need:
½-1 Eggplant, 3-4 Ripe Tomatoes, 4 Mushrooms, 3/4-1 Zucchini, 1 clove of Garlic, Salt, Pepper, Herbs (for eg. thyme/ basil/ oregano) , 1 tin Crushed Tomatoes, olive oil and 1 Red Onion (optional: 1tsp sugar and 1 vegetable stock cube) 

  • Peel and dice your red onion and slice your mushrooms. Gently fry in a pan with olive oil.
  • Cut the eggplant, tomatoes and zucchini into chunks and add to the now soft mushroom and onion fry.
  • Add the spices/ herbs and taste. Fry for a few minutes and add the garlic and crushed tomatoes. 
  • Leave to simmer and taste. If you want more flavour and sweetness (depending on your tinned tomatoes quality) add 1 tsp of sugar and a vegetable stock cube. Leave to simmer and get a deep flavour. Be careful to not over cook the veggie sauce, if so it will turn into mush. (add a small amount water if the sauce is too thick)
  • Now the pasta sauce is ready to serve with your favourite type of pasta. We have used a spinach egg free tagliatelle.
