My home made tomato sauce!!

Making your own pasta sauce is easy, cheap and definitly more tasty than the shop bought jars!!
All you need is
Tin tomatoes (plum, whole, chopped, whatever)
Garlic (powder or fresh)
Belle Pepper
Tomato paste
Basil & Oregano
Salt & Pepper
Olive oil
Chop the onions and peppers to the size you like (some people dont like big bits of either in there food and if you dont like any bits but still want the taste you can blend them once they are cooked with the tomatoes!!)
Fry them in a pan with a tbls of olive oil until they are tender. If using fresh garlic add 2-3 tsp (depending on how much you love garlic and I LOVE IT) at the end and alow to cook for just a min.
Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, a tsp of basil and oregano, about 2-3 tsp of garlic powder, a tsp of sugar and mix together.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Allow to simmer for about 10 min
You can add ground beef, chicken, vegetables, tuna or you can even use this as a pizza sauce!!
