Pasta, Sauce & veg

This is such an easy recipe, it seems pointless to post it, but here goes.


  • enough pasta for 2 adults & 2 small children
  • a good glug of olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • a big squeeze of tomato puree
  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes
  • some veg, e.g. broccoli, carrots, peas, sweetcorn
  • pitted olives (optional)


  1. put the kettle on to boil
  2. gently heat the oil in a pan, add the onion & garlic & cook over a gentle heat until softened
  3. put the boiling kettle water into a big pan for the water & the steamer for the veg
  4. stir in the tomato puree to the onion & cook for a couple of minutes
  5. add the tin of tomatoes, bring to the boil & then reduce to a simmer
  6. add the pasta & veg to the appropriate pans
  7. serve when the pasta & veg is cooked

Note: DD1 (3.5) needs this to be served in separate piles. Pasta must be naked. <sigh>
