This is a great homemade sauce to use as a pizza base or to smother your meatballs over courgetti. (See my Low-carb Cabbage and Mince Rolls where I used the full batch.) The recipe yields a 500g / 17.6oz batch which will sufficiently feed 4 people as a ‘pasta’ sauce. (The macros have been calculated that one person’s serving will be approximately 125g / 4.4oz.) If you don’t need to use it all, you can freeze the remaining in handy batches. Don’t forget to stir in some dried oregano for an authentic Italian flavour.
A delicious roasted tomato sauce to replace store-bought passata, coming in at 7.7g carbs per serving. The recipe will yield enough for 4 people to use as a sauce over courgetti etc (macros calculated as a 125g / 4.4oz serving)
Place the unpeeled garlic cloves onto a piece of aluminium foil. Drizzle over the teaspoon olive oil and wrap up tightly, ensuring the little foil parcel is sealed air-tight (make sure the skin of each clove is intact.)
Halve the tomatoes and spread out on a roasting tray. Drizzle over the tablespoon olive oil and toss well to evenly coat. Add the garlic foil parcel to the tray.
Bake in the oven for 1 hour.
Remove and tip into a bowl or pan. Add the white wine vinegar. Open up the little foil parcel of roasted garlic. Once the cloves are cool enough to handle, slice off the top end of each and slide out the roasted puree.
Use a hand blender to blitz the mixture well. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. (Add a pinch of dried oregano for an authentic Italian flavour.)
Set aside to use as a pizza base sauce or 'pasta' sauce over your meatballs and courgetti.
