Easy Peasy Pasta

I had a call from a Dairy Cookbook regular last week, who enquired where to buy the bruschetta topping used in the pizza recipe on page 60 of Clever Cooking for One or Two.

This is available from Waitrose (Bruschetta topping in olive oil) and Tesco (Tomato and basil bruschetta topping).

We then got chatting about sauces in jars, specifically sauces for pasta. I must admit, I have never found one that I am totally satisfied with (except pesto) and I much prefer to make my own.

My favourite for a really speedy meal is to stir some low fat cream cheese into cooked pasta and to heat it gently with one or two tablespoons of pesto sauce.  I then season well with black pepper and add some steamed or stir-fried vegetables (great for using up leftover veg). Not only is this quick but it’s healthy too.

We would love to hear your easy pasta sauce suggestions. Which ready-made sauces do you enjoy and what tips do you have for simple home-made sauces?

    My favourite pasta sauce is so easy to make and tastes so fresh and summery.

    Oven roast cherry tomatoes until they burst and start to blacken.

    Add a drizzle of olive oil and break the tomatoes up but without mushing them.

    Season with a lttle salt and freshly ground black pepper.

    Serve over pasta straight from the pan. Drizzle a little more olive oil.

    Eat. Enjoy
