Ingredients

  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic finely chopped
  • 1 aubergine
  • 1 courgette peeled if green bits are a problem
  • 1 red pepper
  • 400 g piece of butternut squash peeled
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 400 g tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 100-200 ml water
Metric - US Customary

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C (fan)/200°C/gas mark 6.
  2. Place the onion and garlic in a large roasting tin.
  3. Chop the remaining vegetables into similar sized pieces - the smaller they are the quicker they'll cook - and place with the onion and garlic.
  4. Pour over the olive oil and the oregano and stir well to combine.
  5. Place in the oven and roast for around 45 minutes stirring two or three times.
  6. When the vegetables are soft pour over the chopped tomatoes and stir well.
  7. Pour the amount of sauce you want blended into a blender, or use a handheld stick blender and blend. I usually leave half of the sauce unblended at this stage if I'm going to be eating it too as I prefer it this way.
  8. Add water a little at a time until you have a sauce-like consistency.
  9. Enjoy!
  10. Store any un-used sauce in little pots or ice cube trays in the freezer.
