Basic Arrabbiata Sauce

2 onions
6 cloves of garlic
1 large red chilli (at least)
1 tsp dried mixed herbs
700g passata/2 tins of tomatoes

Chuck the onions, chilli and garlic in a food processor and blend into small bits/paste. Heat some oil of your choice in a pan.

Add the paste to the pan, with the mixed herbs. Cook for 5 or so mins, then add the passata/tomatoes. Season to taste.

Stir and bring to the boil, then simmer for about 15 mins.

Can be frozen once cool. Use with pasta, roasted veggies, chicken, sausage, etc

You can add more chilli to taste, and it also depends on what type of chilli you're using as to how hot it is in the end. Arrabbiata is supposed to be noticeably hot/spicy, so if you can't taste the chilli, you've not got enough in!
