How To Transform A Budget Pasta Sauce Into A Luxury Tasting Meal

by - July 27, 2019

One of my favourite kitchen cheats is transforming a cheap jar of pasta sauce will set you back anywhere between 25p-40p in most UK supermarkets, and by using just a few store cupboard and fridge essentials you can transform a pretty tasteless budget jar of pasta sauce into something Mama Dolmio would be proud of!

What you need:

A handful or cherry tomatoes
2 red onions
Garlic (either 2 cloves or a dollop of puree!)
Balsamic vinegar

Start by chopping the cherry tomatoes in half, and slicing the onion, crush the garlic of you are using cloves. 
Heat some olive oil in a deep pan, and add the tomatoes, onion and garlic (unless you are using puree, then hold that for now!) to the pan and sautee until soft. 
Once they are nice and soft, add the jar of sauce, (garlic puree if using) and a good glug of balsamic. 

Cook for 5 minutes and then add to your pasta dish.
