I used to preserve it in jars but now I freeze it in meal size portions. Its a great winter comfort food. Sometimes I add fried meatballs or sausages to make a more substantial spaghetti & the sauce or spaghetti is lovely over fish cakes.

- 1.4 kg
- fresh tomatoes
- onion, chopped
- 1/4 c
- 1/2 Tbsp
- pepper to taste
- 60 g
- chopped bacon (optional)
1Chop tomatoes roughly.. dont worry about peeling or seeds. Chop onion & bacon roughly & boil together (or microwave) until soft.
2Put tomato/onion mixture through a mouli to remove skins & seeds.
3Add sugar, salt & pepper to strained tomato mix. Bring to the boil.
4Boil for 1/2 hour, stirring occasionally then freeze or jar.
Add 150g broken spaghetti pasta before boiling if you plan to serve immediately. The pasta soaks up the extra liquid so just cook until pasta is al dente (about 10 minutes).
I usually stir through 60g of grated cheese when it has finished cooking... or sprinkle on top once plated up.
