Do you enjoy just pulling a tomato base sauce full of flavour from the freezer? Then this thermomix Passata recipe is very handy to have in the freezer to use in spaghetti bol, nachos, on a pizza base or in any recipe that calls for can tomatoes – it adds a whole new flavour dimension to whatever you are using it in. Enjoy!
Made extra flavoursome with the herbs and capsicum and semi-dried tomatoes your family won’t be disappointed with the flavour this base puts out! I encourage you to give it a go and leave the bland watered down passatas on the shelf.
