Sugo di Pomodoro (Tomato Sauce)

Every Italian household needs a fantastic Sugo di Pomodoro for the base of all their tomato based dishes.
 I will from here every so often take you on my journey of Italy and this Sauce will come in very handy. 
Simple but delicious, can even be eaten on its own with a bit of pasta!

Makes 2 500g Batches

You Will need:
Tomato Passata (I used 2 500g cartons)
Soffrito - 1 Onion Diced, 2 Sticks of Celery Diced small - 1 Carrot Diced 
10 Basil Leaves chopped 
Frylight/Calorie Controlled Oil Spray 

In a large non stick frying pan sprayed with oil, saute the soffrito over a low heat until softened 
Add the Tomato Passata and simmer for 10 minutes
After 10 minutes add the basil and simmer for another 15 minutes 
Then its ready to use for all your culinary needs - refrigerate, freeze or cook with straight away - so versatile!
