Low FODMAP Easy Tomato Pasta Sauce

Posted in : Dinner, Every Day Basics, Italian, Sauces and Pastes, Vegetarian on by : Bryony Campion Tags: , , , , , ,

This quick and easy sauce is a great option after a hard day at work can even be warmed up with a bit of chilli if spice is your thing.  The anchovy paste gives a great savoury note without any of the fishy-ness you might expect and the garlic infused oil and chives provide great flavour without the FODMAPs.

Equally this sauce makes a fantastic base for other pasta dishes such as pasta bakes or can be made more substantial with the addition of chicken, prawns or even minced beef.

Cooked and stored in a  closed jar this sauce will last for 2-3 days safely in the fridge or can be made in advance and frozen in portions for up to 3 months for super-convenient low FODMAP meals.

2 x 400g tin chopped tomatoes

1 tbsp tomato puree

2 tsp dried oregano

1 tsp garlic infused oil

1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

salt and pepper to taste
