With hopefully at least a few roma tomatoes coming on, I would love to have a crack at making a nice homemade pasta sauce. Be nice to hear peoples favourite recipes.

The vege garden is like having a second family.

I have a very simple recipe that is also very flexible! One of my kids hates veggies, so we sneak them into the pasta sauce. For every kg of tomatoes, add an onion, a capsicum (red or green), a stick of celery and a couple cloves of garlic. The veggies are chopped roughly and cooked in a big pot with a bit of olive oil, and when they are soft, I add the herbs, usually a good handful of fresh basil and oregano from the garden. Then the tomatoes are added -- if you are fussy, you can skin them first, but if I'm using fresh ones, I don't usually bother. A good dollop of tomato paste, some fresh ground black pepper, a teaspoon or so of salt and sometimes a teaspoon on of sugar depending on how sweet the toms are. Personally I add a fair bit more veggies, and make this up in a big pot with about 2.5kgs of tomatoes. Any more than that and it sticks on the bottom and burns. Extra veggies -- chopped zucchini, sometimes a sweet potato or a bit of pumpkin, any leftover cooked veggies sitting in the fridge. I let it cook for a few hours, then puree with a stick blender. Because I use it in lots of different ways, I often freeze some in muffin tins in the freezer, then transfer to a freezer bag when fully frozen. This way you can pop out a frozen block whenever needed.

Happy cooking!

A recipe shown to me by an old Italian flatmate for using cheap cuts of meat, he just called it meat sauce. It makes a lot, so make sure you have room in the freezer ( or 30 people to feed)
3-4kg of the cheapest cuts of meat you can get your hands on- a mixture of beef, pork, veal, lamb, chicken (all preferably on the bone)
1 hot dry Italian sausage- chopped into small pieces
1kg minced beef,1 onion, egg etc- just make your favourite meatball recipe
3-4 liters sugo/pasata
I also like to add a few bacon bones for a bit of smokiness
Brown the meat and sausage, add to a large pot, cover with sugo and bring to a slow boil, add golf ball sized meatballs, simmer slowly until sauce is reduced and the meat is falling off the bone ( 6-8 hours) stir regularly to stop sauce sticking on the bottom
Allow to cool for a while, then remove meat from the bones and return to the sauce
