1small handfulFresh Basil Leave, thinly sliced and chopped
Add the olive oil and garlic to a saucepan and cook over medium heat for 1-2 minutes, until the garlic is fragrant.
Add the passata, tomato paste and oregano to the pan and stir to combine.
Allow the sauce to come to a simmer and then reduce the heat to low and simmer for a minimum of 10 mins. (longer if you wish to develop flavour more or thicken).
Add the chopped basil and stir through.
If you find your sauce has a sharp/ acidic taste then try simmering for longer or add a pinch of sugar. No salt is added to this recipe (as developed with babies / young children in mind) if cooking for older kids / adults then you may wish to season, to taste, at the end of cooking. If you wish a thicker sauce allow the sauce to simmer longer (uncovered) or add a little more tomato paste.
Refrigeratate - Store in an airtight container, in the refrigerator, for 3-5 days.
Freeze - To freeze this sauce, cool and then transfer to freezable bags or containers. For smaller portions, perfect for baby food, pour into ice-cube trays (flexible ones work best). Once frozen, remove the cubes from the tray and transfer to a freezable bag or container and return to the freezer.
