This recipe has been in my family for as long as I can remember. When I was a baby, I was generally fed avocados, bananas and this pasta sauce…. And not much has changed since to be honest. This is a very simple, delicious, versatile and family-friendly pasta sauce recipe, which you can also use as a base for lasagne, a dip, or as a filling inside a wrap or sandwich. If you make this pizza recipe, you can use it as the sauce on top too.
One of the best things about this recipe is that it’s much healthier than even the ‘healthy’ pasta sauce recipes in the supermarket, AND it’s quicker to make this sauce than popping round the shops to buy a jar.
- 2tsp coconut oil
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 sticks celery, chopped

- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 tsp honey
Melt the coconut oil in a deep pan.
Add the onion, cover and stir occasionally until softened.
Add the carrot and celery and stir well.
Add the chopped tomatoes, Italian seasoning and honey – cover, stir occasionally and cook for approximately 10-12 minutes.
