Alex's Napoli Sauce

Yesterday we took the girls on the long drive to and from their grandparent's house and eventually arrived home late and hungry. This Napoli sauce is a favourite of Alex's to make and we had it last night with spaghetti and a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese - a perfectly simple meal to end the day.
We often have it on home-made pizza as well and you can prepare it ahead and keep it in the fridge for a few days.



Napoli Sauce:


50ml oil
1 x onion
2 or 3 garlic cloves sliced (abt 30g)
500g tin of chopped tomato
a few stalks of basil
salt and pepper to taste


1.Heat the oil in a heavy-based saucepan, add garlic and cook for 30seconds.

2. Add the onion and seasoning  and cover.

3. Turn the heat to low (minimum) and cook covered for 5 minutes.

4. Add the tomato and basil stalks and cook until reduced by 1/4.

5. Take the basil out before serving.
