Introduction

A super sauce for pasta. Chilli can be added to the sauce for an extra 'kick'. The vegetables can be altered to suit your own personal tastes. If you thickn the sauce it can be used as a spread for pizza bases. If you dilute the sauce with vegetable stock this can be turned into a soup. Any excess of the sauce can be successfully frozen at -18 degrees centigrade for 1 month.
