Hey Yummy Mummy,s and Daddy,s
I find a Basic veggie tomato sauce the best way.
I leave this sauce a bit chunky, but you can wiz it up with a blender if you have a little one, who doesn’t like the lumps!!! Its so versatile, as it can be used for bruschetta or french bread pizza the next day ….(the other day I had a little one who “hates veggie,s” gobble up 2 french bread pizzas) Score x
It Tastes so much better than any shop bought jar which is full of sugar… and really easy to make.
The only problem is…… When my little yum eats it with spaghetti, she is covered in it! And enjoys a good wash in the sink when shes done.. A sign of a great meal eh…..
Have fun, get messy, One Yummy Mummy xxx
