Rosi's Princess Pasta Sauce

So as we know all princesses are strong, pretty and have beautiful hair - just look at Rapunzal, she lived in a tower and managed to climb out just using her hair, so it goes without saying that to be a princess you must eat like a princess i.s eat all your vegetables and you will be strong, pretty and have Rapunzel like hair!

Today is Rosi's Princess Pasta Sauce, a great sauce that uses up all your left over veg. A sauce that children can also help create and even if they are too young to cook they can help identify the veg as it goes in. So Rosi helped to chop and Kitty put it in the pot (and tried to stir it, although most of it went up the wall!)

Makes loads, so theres plenty over to freeze for later!
1 pepper
1 leek
1 onion
1 courgette
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
1 teaspoon of pesto (or make your own - basil, pine nuts, oil, spinach etc)

simply chop all your veg and pop into a big jug
add the tinned tomatoes and stir
heat through till all hard veg is soft
Whiz with a hand held mixer or pop in a soup mixer.
Sauce is done! At this point you can test if it needs anything else, you may want to make it thinner etc (add tomato paste or stock) or you may want to add more veg (cram it in, they'll never know)

The you can add it to cooked pasta, or add cooked mince for the base of spag bol, or lasagnes etc

easy peasy x have fun
