Absurdly Easy Herby Tomato Sauce

Prep time a few minutes, makes about 300ml, or enough to cover pasta for 3-4 children or to spread on pizza and freeze some or store in the fridge!
The only trick is you need a good amount of fresh herbs.

2 large or 3 medium nice ripe tomatoes
2 large tbsp tomato paste
fresh herbs: a good handful each of basil, parsley, and coriander (in whatever proportion you’ve got/fancy), small amount of dill and/or mint if you like
half a not-too-strong red onion
clove of garlic, crushed
pinch of (preferably sea) salt
olive oil to mix up to total of 300ml or enough to mix into a smooth paste if using as a pizza topping.

Put all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and blitz. That’s it!!!

Sacha says "I love this raw sauce in the summer. It is great on any kind of pasta. If you want to make a slightly more substantial meal, add a tin of white beans (just rinse, drain, and stir into the pasta and sauce), some grated cheese, and/or black olives. This is a 5-minute, one pot dinner."
