Homemade Spaghetti/Pasta Sauce

I've never realized it untill I made my own pasta sauce, that I've spent so much money on those store bought ones all these years. Homemade sauce sure saving you lots of money and the best thing is.... it's hot fresh from your pot & no preservative added. Definitely, they'll be NO more store bought spaghetti sauce in my pantry in future but more fresh tomatoes in the fridge.

Ingredients :
500gm fresh tomatoes, skinned & seeded
1 can(450gm) tomato puree
2 large onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tspn red chilies flakes/cayenne pepper powder
3 bay leaves
2 tpsn mixed herbs
1/2 tpsn crashed black peppercorn
1/2 cup red wine
1 tspn salt
50gm butter + 1/2 cup cooking oil


Method :
(1) please do refer here how to clean up tomatoes.
(2) preheat a frying pan with butter & oil.
(3) saute onion, garlic, bay leaves & mixed herbs untill fragrant.
(4) stir in chili flakes, black pepper & fresh tomato simmer till tender.

(5) now, stir in tomato puree, wine & salt and let it simmer over medium heat till thicken.
(6) withdraw half portion to a clean jar and leave coo before refrigerate it.
(7) the other half portion is enough to serve a 500gm pasta.

Now, here's my end product. Don't you love the gorgeous colour and aroma! I bet you can smell it too. ha...
jam, sauce, dressing, pickling

Looks so yummy! Have you tried fresh noodles with it? We got hooked on fresh pasta and we had packaged last night, was so disappointing. I have yet to make my own dough. That's the next challenge. Love your recipe!
