Dolmios a bit much for me personally, I stick to Pams tomato pasta sauce. Grate a bit of tasty cheese into it if im really going nuts.

It's an expensive indulgence. usually i get a can of trident chopped tomatoes with red and green capsicum, and add a can of Watties pasta sauce (Once again,with Capsicums) to some mince and garlic.

Sweet I'm gonna try that one next time.

Never tried the Pam's one. The Home Brand one was all good. Not a fan of the Watties ones at all.

I usually stay away from the canned ones because they taste like shit.

Oh, stromboli is a brand.

A sauce I make for dinner sometimes is just a kg of mince, couple of cans of tomatoes (if you use italian you dont have to use herbs generally), mushrooms, a few sliced black olives, garlic and a little sugar at the end to taste. Cook it for about an hour on the stove, adding a little bit of water if it gets a bit dry. Salt and pepper to taste at the end, usually pretty mean and surprisingly easy.

Here's mine, works for bolognaise and lasagne and if you're a salad muncher you only need leave out the mince or substitute it with hippy food like lentils or tofu or something.

You will need:

1 Onion
1 or 2 cloves of garlic depending on how scared of vampires you are
1 cup of sliced button mushrooms, preferably brown ones
1 cup of sliced capsicum
1 small carrot, finely sliced
1 stalk of celery, finely slice
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
1 generous spoonful of tomato paste
1 cup of dry white wine
1 cup of vegetable stock
500g of topside mince


Chuck the onion and garlic up your frying pan and get it smelling good, then chuck the mushroom, capsicum, carrot and celery up that bitch. Fry the bastards until they're soft and aromatic, then drop the mince in there and brown the shit out of it.

Next, add the wine and stock and cook it until it's reduced somewhat, then add the chopped tomatoes and the tomato paste.

Let the cunt simmer for about an hour, then do what thou will with it.


EXTRA FOR EXPERTS: Instead of using canned tomatoes, if you've got enough fresh ones around, blanch them in boiling water, drain them over a slotted spoon, then peel and seed them. Your flatmates/missus/gimp will then accordingly think that you are as flash as fuck.


EDIT: Forgot about the stock.

fuck that premade shit... make your own, its way cheaper and way heaps meaner. don't forget a good smash of balsamic vinegar in there, and heeeaps of garlic. hell, even biff in a tsp of chicken stock powder to bolster that shit a bit more..

as far as other sauces go - cream, white wine, bacon, mushroom and chicken all work wonders with each other...

Agreed. Pre-made stuff is a let down and not as satisfying as making your own shit. Same goes for pizza bases.

Easy as good as pasta sauce.

Dice two average sized onions and smash up a clove or three of garlic til it becomes a paste (or use a spoon or two of pre smashed shit)
Saute onions (feel free to add mushrooms or whatever here too) in oil being careful not to brown them, you want them to be soft, sweet and translucent, when it's getting close to that chuck in your garlic and stir that shit up for thirty seconds or so.
Add to the pan three tins of tomators, watties usually taste the best and a good table spoon or so of tomato paste (optional, just speeds shit up)
Add your favourite herbs, I just use a fuck load of basil and oregano, simmer on low for half an hour or longer (the longer the better, can keep adding water as it evaporates)
Add pepper and salt to taste and you're sorted for some mamas spaghetti.

Cheapest sauce:

1 Can of Tomatoes
1/2 a White Onion (diced)
75grams of Butter

Chuck it all in and just simmer for like 45mins. Haven't figured a way to thicken it up, but maybe the can of tomatoes has an effect on this.

Can add whatever you want to it, Chilli Flakes, Herbs, Garlic.
Even better the next day.

Making it yourself is ultimately superior. Buying it in a jar is like eating those ghastly Watties big eats or something.

1 red onion
2 cloves of garlic
1/2 cup of red wine
1 can chopped tomatos
1tsp sugar
1 tsp dried basil.
Salt and pepper to taste

Fry finely chopped onions and garlic in olive oil until soft, add everything else, stir, simmer.

I like to give it a hoon with a potato masher or stick mixer to get it all smooth, but whatevs, really.

Alternatively...

1 shallot
1 clove of garlic
1tsp raw sugar
balsamic vinegar
1 cup of cream
A good fuck off handful of decent cheese
fresh chives.

Fry the finely chopped shallot and garlic, then add the sugar and a dash of balsamic and let it caramelize up nicely.

Pour in the cream and maybe even some sour cream if you have some lurking in the fridge and let it simmer and reduce.

Once it's thickening up nicely, stir through the cheese to thicken it up some more, add some salt and pepper to taste, then take off the stove and stir through some chopped chives. Mean as with fresh fettuccine.

1/2 large red onion
4 or 5 cloves of garlic
1/2 a head of broccoli
1 medium courgette
6 or 7 button mushrooms
heaps of spinach
1 red or yellow capsicum
cheese(if you aint vegan)
2 tsp oil
whatever green herbs you have around the house

in a medium pot slowly start frying smashed up/diced onion and garlic on a low heat.
after a wee bit til its nice and soft and smells real choice, start to add chopped up vegetables (you dont even need to be all fancy about flash as ways to cut the vegetables because its going to be chucked up a food processor) crank up the heat a bit more on the stove and stir occasionally so they dont stick/burn to your pot, you can
add some more oil to help. after all your vegetables are all cooked and soft, put them all in a food processor and crank it on full until you have a green puree, you can add grated cheese to it while in the processor too if you desire.

drown your freshly cooked pasta in this sauce and enjoy! 0X
