A quick and easy tomato-based sauce which is perfect for serving with fresh pasta and Parmesan.
Peel and finely slice the onion. Top, tail and dice the courgette. Pick the basil leaves.
Pour the olive oil into a saucepan on a low heat. Add the onion and cook for 2 minutes before adding the courgette. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes until softened. Finally stir in the tinned tomatoes, season with salt and pepper and cook on a gentle simmer for 20 minutes. Stir in the basil and serve on top of fresh pasta with a generous sprinkling of grated Parmesan.
«Add chopped chilli to the sauce to give it a little kick. This sauce can also be used as a topping for pizzas - a real store cupboard favourite!»
