Tonight we needed a quick tea so raided the freezer for a leftover stash. I found an unlabelled mysterious package which turned out to be a batch of bolognaise sauce.
The only way to salvage was to whip up my favourite tomato sauce…
Onion (medium) sliced and diced
Carrot (medium) scrubbed and grated
Garlic clove crushed
Teaspoon of fennel seeds crushed
Tin on chopped plum tomatoes opened
Splash of oil in sauce pan add onion, carrot and cook on medium heat for five minutes
Add garlic and fennel and cook for a further 2 minutes then add tomatoes.
Cook for 15 minutes, season and blitz with a stick blender taking care not to splash yourself.
Add enough sauce to the bolognaise to bring it back to life.
I love this sauce the fennel really gives it a depth of flavour and it’s really rich and smooth the carrot removes any acidity from the tomatoes .
Just goes to show how easy it is to cook from scratch using simple ingredients.
We’ve yet to try this with just pasta but I feel confident with some basil ripped over the top it would be a winner too.
